New to webinars? Here’s what you need to know!
1. What is a webinar?
A webinar is a seminar presented over the Internet or World Wide Web (Web + seminar = webinar) and viewed with a computer with an Internet connection. Since webinars consist of both visual and audio information a telephone is also required. There may be one or more speakers providing comments and answering questions during the presentation.
2. What do I need?
A quiet room with a computer connected to the Internet. A telephone is optional.
3. Where are webinars held? How far must I travel to attend a webinar?
Since the content of the webinar is delivered directly to your computer, there is no need to travel anywhere. You may ‘attend’ a webinar anywhere there is a computer with Internet access: your office, at home, or while traveling. Webinars allow the sharing of information without the travel and other costs associated with traditional seminars and workshops.
6. How much participation is required of me?
From simply watching the slide presentation and listening to the audio broadcast, to asking as many questions of the presenters as you like, your level of participation is completely up to you.
7. Will other people be aware that I am attending?
Both the host and presenter at the webinar will know that you are attending this webinar. The other attendees will not be able to see the attendance list.
8. What is the cost to attend a webinar?
The cost to attend a webinar presentation will vary depending on the topic and length of presentation but a typical 1 hour presentation will cost $30 for members of CCPA and $40 for non members (plus applicable taxes).

You simply register on the website and then use the information provided to you in an email you will receive the prior to the webinar. This information includes instructions, a link to “Join the meeting”.
5. How do I ask questions of presenters during a webinar?
We will be using Adobe Connect which will allow you to ask questions via a text-typing tool in the webinar’s interface. Simply type your question at any time during the webinar and the question will be forwarded to the presenters and/ or host to respond.

That will be determined by the presenter of each webinar.
