WEEKLY CONFERENCE UPDATE #7
AJL Conference organizers are excited to announce that we will again use the Socio App for the AJL 2021 Digital Conference: Moving Forward. Since last year, Socio has made lots of improvements to the website making it easier to use on your desktop or laptop computer. The Socio Mobile App and the Socio Web App are now connected and once you are logged in, they will automatically sync with each other. While you do not need to download the Socio Mobile App onto your smartphone or tablet, we do recommend it for easy access to notifications and to connect with other attendees. You can use the same account login that you used last year or create a new one.
You will need a passcode to sign into the 2021 Conference on both the Socio Mobile App and the Socio Web App. The link and passcode will only be e-mailed to conference registrants. Please watch for that email and check your spam folder. Please DO NOT share the passcode with anyone else. Instead, ask your interested friends to register for the conference. Online registration is available at https://jewishlibraries.org/2021-conference/.
The AJL 2021 Digital Conference Socio Mobile App and Web App contain the entire conference schedule, all Zoom links, session descriptions, speaker bios, information about our sponsors and exhibitors, links to handouts and slides, and easy ways to communicate with other attendees through the Discussion Board. You can also send requests to connect with specific individuals. You can even select the sessions you would like to attend and create your own personal agenda. Plus, you will receive notifications regarding any schedule changes and other announcements. We suggest that you leave the notifications turned on in the Mobile App so that you don’t miss out on anything important. With just a few clicks, you will have instant and easy access to everything you need to know about the conference!
Direct all questions about Socio to Lisa Silverman, National Conference Chairperson, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The full conference program is available on the AJL website. The registration fee is $65 for AJL members and $35 for students. We welcome non-members to register for $150 but we encourage you to join AJL to benefit from the member rate.
