Webinars

The AIA is pleased to be able to present a webinar program exclusively for its members.

Webinars focus on providing additional investing resources to members who like the idea of learning from the comfort of their own home.

What is a webinar?

Webinar is short for ‘web seminar’.  It is just like an in-person seminar except you ‘attend’ the webinar from your desk or lounge chair, using you own computer.  You will see the powerpoint presentation on your screen and simultaneously listen to the presenters voice through your speakers or headphones.  You usually get the opportunity to interact with the presenter by typing questions in the chat window which the presenter can respond to when appropriate.

What do I need to take part in a webinar?

To attend an online webinar you need a computer with a sound card and speakers or headphones.  You will also need an internet connection of 56 kbps (dial up) or better.  PC based attendees will need  Windows® 7, Vista, XP or 2003 Server.  Macintosh®-based attendees will need  Mac OS® X 10.5 or newer.

How do I register for a webinar?

AIA members will receive an email inviting registrations approximately 2 – 3 weeks before each webinar.  All you need to do is click on the ‘Register Now’ link in the email which will take you to the webinar hosting service where you will be asked to provide your name and your email address and to confirm whether you are an AIA member.  After you submit your registration you will receive a confirmation email with more details.

How do I attend a webinar?

You will receive reminder emails which will contain instructions for joining the webinar and a link for joining.  When it is time to start the webinar you simply open your inbox and click on the link in your email.  You will be asked to download the software when you attend a webinar.  This download usually doesn’t take too long although if some versions of software (e.g. Java) on your PC are not current you may be required to update these before you can attend the webinar.

Having registered, if you can’t attend for any reason, a link to a recording of the event will usually be sent to you so that you can watch it in your own time.
