Sessions & Content

How do I access all of conference content, both during and after the event?

The conference features both live and pre-recorded sessions that registered attendees can view beginning December 8. All registration passes (with the exception of Marketplace-only pass) provide access to the virtual exhibit hall, networking spaces and additional ABA resources. All of this content will be available on-demand through January 31, 2021.

What does "on-demand" mean?

Most of our sessions will be pre-recorded and will be available on-demand through the conference platform after they air the first time according to the schedule. Live sessions will be recorded and after they air, will also be available on the platform. All conference sessions will be available on-demand after the conference concludes until January 31. This gives you significant flexibility in watching sessions later should you only have a limited amount of time during the live conference days and want to use that time to engage in the live interactive portions of the event. 

When and how can I access the virtual conference?

Registered attendees will receive a link via email to the Intrado platform one hour before the first live session begins on December 8. The link will be sent to the email address you used to register which also serves as your login for the event. You’ll use the same link each day to access the platform for the live conference and whenever you choose to view the on-demand content.

What if I don't receive the link?

Contact [email protected] and a member of the ABA team can provide you with one.

Can I share this link with others?

Just like an in-person meeting, registrations cannot be shared. The registration provides a single sign-on secure experience for the user.

When will times and schedules for live sessions be announced?

We expect to update the agenda with a detailed schedule of live events in the weeks closer to the event, and we will send a notification once available.

How much live content will there be on December 8, 9 and 10?

Each day will feature 1-2 live sessions in the morning and again in the afternoon. Expect each day to begin around 10 AM ET and end by 4 PM ET with breaks for Marketplace, peer interactions and lunch. Breakout sessions will air for the first time at specific times during the day and then placed in our on-demand library after they air. 

Sessions will range in length between 30 and 60 minutes.

How much time should I expect to be online during the event days?

If you are able, we encourage you to set aside these three days as if you were attending an in-person event. This will allow you to watch many sessions and participate in the networking and marketplace activities, including the many prize drawings. Knowing that many have work and/or other obligations, you can relax knowing that if you miss a session, all of the sessions will eventually be added to our on-demand library, accessible until January 31, 2021.

Will session materials (handouts and/or PPTs) presented during the conference be made available in advance or after sessions have been completed?

All session materials will be available for download, as always through our attendees-only presentations page on aba.com. Each session you watch on the platform will show the presentation along with the speakers; however, all content on the platform is not downloadable and will remain secure and only accessible through the single sign-on login.

Will live content be available after the fact on demand, or only live?

Live content will be recorded, subject to speaker permission, and put on the platform for on-demand viewing.

How long will on-demand content be available?

Content will be available for you to experience and/or revisit until January 31, 2021. While the interactive chatrooms and other portions of the platform will close after the live event ends December 10, you will still be able to view session content and visit exhibit booths to chat with exhibitors offline.

Am I able or allowed to share downloadable conference content?

While PPT and supplement materials from aba.com will be available to download until January 31, please note that no recordings/sessions of any kind that are accessed on the platform can be downloaded (or shared) at any time. This event is a single sign-on/no group sharing of content, meaning your registration is just like a conference badge at an in-person conference.

CE Credits & ABA Certifications

Is the ABA/ABA Financial Crimes Enforcement Conference eligible for CPE? If so, how many CPE and what is the process?

CPE credits are calculated as 11.7 (field of study-8.9 Mgmt. Srvcs, 1 Reg. Ethics, 1.8 IT). Attendees will receive instructions via email after the event concludes on how to obtain their CPE certificate of completion.

CPE credits can only be claimed by participating in the live portion of the conference during the designated dates of December 8-10, 2020.

American Bankers Association is registered with the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) as a sponsor of continuing professional education on the National Registry of CPE Sponsors. State boards of accountancy have the final authority on the acceptance of individual courses for CPE credit. Complaints regarding registered sponsors may be submitted to the National Registry of CPE Sponsors through its website: www.nasbaregistry.org

How many CE credits are available for each registration type?

The conference will provide CE credit for the following certifications: 

  • Certified AML and Fraud Professional (CAFP): 15 CE credits
  • Certified Enterprise Risk Professional (CERP): 7 CE credits
  • Certified Regulatory Compliance Manager (CRCM): 15 CE credits

Will CLE credit be available at this year’s conference?

The American Bar Association has not applied for CLE credit for this program. You will not receive CLE credit for participating. If you have any questions, please contact Carol Rose at [email protected]. Attendees can also visit the American Bar Association virtual booth throughout the conference in the Marketplace.

Event Platform

Do I have to watch the conference from the same device used to register? Our training manager typically handles all the sign-ups but will not be the one participating.

You can access the platform on any device but in order to login, you will need the email address you used to register. Make sure the person in charge of registering provides individual emails so each attendee can sign in individually.

Will this have a single login where a group can attend together, or is it intended as an individual attendance?

The conference is a single sign-on experience and intended only for individuals. Each registration is just for a single person, and the content can't be exported out of the platform for a shared experience. Only registered attendees will be eligible for CE Credits.

Is Intrado an app, or is it streaming?

Intrado is not an app. It is a cloud-based secure streaming conference solution, and the conference features a secure single sign-on requirement. ABA’s webinars are held on Intrado, too, and the conference platform is simply a more robust environment. Content and information can’t be lifted from the platform for use elsewhere.

I’m not sure if my company will allow access to the Intrado site. Is there a way I can check to ensure I won’t have problems when the conference begins?

You can run a system check here. In addition, we have a list of tips and device requirements that you can use and/or share with your company’s IT department. Please note that the platform works best when accessed via Chrome or Firefox.

How will I gain access to the platform?

Look for an email before the conference opens on December 8 with instructions on how to access the platform.

Can I connect with other attendees?

There will be an opportunity to engage in a freeform live chat lounge with peers in your asset category on the live days of the conference.

Billing & Pricing

Does the price include multiple attendees like a webinar setting?

The event is hosted on a single sign-on platform. It only allows one user to navigate through the platform and experience sessions, the exhibit hall, chatrooms and more. Each registrant must log in with a unique email address.

What is the difference between each price option?
