Your Guide to Accessing Congress Xstream
As you navigate Congress Xstream this week and on demand (through September 5), you will be using the Intrado platform to give you access to payroll education, Keynote Speakers, the vendor Expo, networking opportunities, games, and a rich supply of RCHs.
And, it will all start with a link in your email that will take you to the Congress Xstream Lobby, where you will start your learning journey. From there, you can expect to find the following:
- General Sessions that will take place in virtual theaters
- Educational Workshop Sessions (eight of them, each with three to four workshop selections for Congress Xstream week as well as beyond in on demand offerings)
- Networking Lounges where you can connect with other attendees and even talk to vendors in the Expo
- A virtual Briefcase, which will be one of your most important Congress Xstream tools, where you will download important documents for the week, including certificates for recertification and documents you’d like to keep such as workshop handouts
- The Expo is always a popular part of the Annual Congress, and this year’s Congress Xstream Expo will be as well. The Expo lets you interact with industry service providers to find the solutions you need. Visit their virtual booths to talk with experts, watch informational videos, and download helpful documents.
- Vendor prizes are always a hit, so visit as many virtual booths as you can to be eligible for vendor prize drawings after the on-demand period ends
- Congress Today’s online magazine at www.CongressToday.org will help you and your colleagues keep up with it all and provide you with frequent updates each day
- #paycon will still be there as well to help you network with hundreds of fellow attendees! Tag your social media posts, photos, and videos with the hashtag #paycon, and watch as the APA conducts daily social media contests and award fun prizes.
- The Congress party is also still going to be a part of your virtual Congress experience, so be sure to not miss DJ shai and Emcee Bryan Chan as they help keep the celebration going
You’ll also have the chance to interact with the APA’s new President Lois Fried, CPP, and APA Executive Director Dan Maddux in their networking lounges.
Congress Xstream offers up to 14.5 RCHs on the live days for attendees. To receive your RCHs, you must watch each educational session in its entirety. You’ll have up to 90 days after the live days of Congress Xstream to view sessions on demand and earn up to 37.5 additional RCHs at your convenience.
On-demand access to the conference and Expo will be available until September 5, 2020.
