Consultant Roundtable FAQs
What are roundtables?
Roundtables are discussions in which all attendees are active participants, contributing equally to the dialogue. A one-hour roundtable session will follow the presentation on each Tuesday and Thursday.*
What will be discussed during the roundtables?
Each roundtable discussion will dive deeper into the topic covered in the preceding presentation, giving participants an opportunity to network and exchange ideas with other industry professionals.
How will the roundtable format work?
Immediately following the presentation, pre-registered roundtable participants will use their custom link to join a Zoom session. Within Zoom, everyone will turn on their webcams and will be able to unmute themselves to contribute to the discussion. The discussion will be led by the presenter and/or a Symposium Committee member.
How do I join a roundtable?
Symposium attendees will receive an invitation to complete the sign-up form. Based upon the description of each presentation, identify the roundtable(s) in which you will participate. You will receive a confirmation email of the roundtable(s) for which you are pre-registered. Prior to the opening of the Symposium, you will receive a unique Zoom link to join each of your selected roundtable(s).
Am I expected to attend all roundtable sessions?
You are not expected to attend all roundtables. We recommend that you review the presentation information as you make your roundtable selection(s) and sign-up for roundtable(s) in which you are particularly interested and will actively contribute.
What if I need to cancel my sign-up for a roundtable?
If you need to change your plan to attend a roundtable, please email Ashley Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
*The presentation entitled, Ethical Dilemmas: a Discussion Among IIBEC Members will not have a follow-up roundtable.
