The LEIU/IALEIA 2017 Annual Training Event Registration is now open. Use the link below to register. Our registration has made several changes this year—including the registration location url. Bookmark this link for future reference as we will be adding to the site (an agenda, exhibitor/sponsor information, details on taking in a Minnesota Twins game, etc).
As we did last year in New Orleans-- we will be using Cvents - the Crowd Compass Mobile Event Application. Both IOS and Android users alike can use the app for any number of functions including networking, attendance tracking, and personalized schedules--just to name a few. The app will contain the agenda, instructor biographies, presentation summaries, an attendee roster, exhibitor and sponsor information, and an interactive map to help you find your way around the training event. Additionally, this will help us toward our goal to "go green" as we will only print a limited number of program guides. If you are unable to download this app or do not have a smartphone--you will be able to print an agenda and supporting information from the Event website prior to the training event so you can bring that information with you. The application can be downloaded for free from iTunes and Google Play and will be available for download on April 3, 2017. The information contained in this app will be secure and only available to our attendees.
This app will also contain bar codes allowing you to use your smart device to register your attendance at the required certification classes. The printed badges will also have these bar codes—so if you do not have a smart device or your smart device cannot download this app—you can use your printed badge to register for the required certification courses. This will also allow you to be to print your own certificates in a timelier manner.
As for the training itself, we are presenting a similar option as we did last year in New Orleans for additional training on Sunday, April 30, 2017 with Michael Bazzell. This year he will be presenting on “A Complete (and FREE) Online Investigations System”. The attached flyer describes that training. Although this training is being held in conjunction with the LEIU/IALEIA Annual Training Event—it is a separate training effort. The registration and costs must be maintained separately. We have, however, made the registration as easy as possible.
