Group Live Streaming
NEW for 2019!
CNS has added Group Live Streaming as a registration option for this year's thematic conference. In addition to the individual Live Streaming option, Group Live Streaming will allow for groups of delegates within universities and other professional settings to participate virtually and benefit from a special group registration rate. All 2019 Thematic Conference speakers, panels, Q&As, opening and closing remarks will be live streamed throughout the entire conference.
Group Live Streaming will require one lead Facilitator to register and be the point of contact with CNS to facilitate all logistics leading up to, during, and after the event. The Facilitator must be a current CNS member.
A CNS Thematic Conference Facilitator's Guide will be provided to support coordination and offer tips and ideas on how to maximize this experience for all group virtual participants. Note that while group participants do not have to be a current CNS member, only current CNS members will receive a Certificate of Participation.
Deadline to register as a Group is Friday, January 4, 2019.
