A pity you aren't covering all of the sessions Feb 22

It's a great idea to stream this kind of event for those of us who can't be there in person, but I was particularly interested in Wolfgang Steinhauer's presentation, which you don't seem to be covering! Although admittedly I'm interested in Avi Staiman's session too - which is one of the reasons I don't often attend conferences. The sessions I want to see are inevitably all scheduled at the same time, and in between there are big gaps with sessions I'm totally uninterested in!

Right, we are covering the specialization track. I think you can view the sessions for three days afterwards. Of course that doesn't resolve the issue in your case.

Should we invite Wolfgang to speak separately for the ProZ.com community?

How can we confirm that ATA is logging our CE points? Feb 23

First of all, thank you very, very much for presenting this. Even with audio and video problems and only one track, I learned a great deal. I wasn't even aware that ELIA existed before this. This conference, and SOM and the free trainings and webinars, make my ProZ Plus membership worth every penny.

At first though, yesterday, I didn't realize what I needed to do to start logging my time watching. Today I did better, but I'm wondering now if there is something else I need to do to make sure those CE points are logged to my ATA membership?
