Producer, Early Childhood Investigations
If you’ve taken our webinars before, you may have noticed that our webinar system sends you a lot of email! You receive one to confirm your registration, up to three reminders, and one after the webinar that either confirms that you have either attended or did not attend the live session.*If you attended the live session, you will receive an email within 2-5 hours after the conclusion of the webinar with the subject line that reads: “THE LINK TO THE CERTIFICATE, RECORDING AND SLIDES FROM…”. KEEP THIS EMAIL! (If you don’t see it, look in your Junk or Spam folder.) The post-webinar follow up email to those who attended that those who did not is super valuable because it also includes links to the recording of the webinar and the slides.
Some states and credentialing organizations require that the confirmation of attendance email accompany your certificate as proof of completion. This email is automatically sent, and it cannot be replicated. Even if you are not required to produce the emails for the certificate to be accepted, it’s always a good idea to keep a portfolio of your professional development. We recommend you create digital files outside of your email program where you save your confirmation emails and certificates. We also recommend saving paper copies as well.If you are a supervisor, encouraging or requiring professional portfolios is a good idea. I can help you guide or confer with your staff members about their growth and plan for continuous improvement. In fact, portfolios and professional development planning are equally important for all staff members, including supervisors. Do you have a portfolio?
Continue the certificates and great programming.
Confirmation e-mails should also be sent to those wh watch the recordings..They have put in the time and effort. Many of us cannot watch the webinar at the time it is aired, because of working or other obligation.s I usually watch the link later in the evening even though it may be several days later.
Hi Carol, Thanks for commenting. I agree it would be perfect if we could send out letters to those people who watch the recordings, but that function is not available through our webinar service or any service I know of. The emails are automatically generated through our webinar system. Literally hundreds of thousands of people have attended our free webinars, and there are only one an a half people managing every aspect of the production, hosting, promotion, and data management for the webinars. We just do not have the infrastructure to manually generate emails to hundreds of thousands of people. You may be surprised to learn that Early Childhood Investigations webinars are not a profit generating entity, so it is really impossible for us to hire all of the people it would take to manually generate thousands of emails. In fact, if we did that, it would be the only thing we could do! We would not have enough time to produce and host the webinars! But, I’m glad you can find time to watch the recordings. We are thrilled to make a difference!
