In support of Area L AHEC’s continuing efforts to “go-green” we will no longer provide paper handouts at our continuing education events. However, handouts and presentation materials may be accessed electronically prior to these events. Prior to the program, participants will receive a link to handouts and other program resources via email. Participants are encouraged to download these presentations to their personal computer or flash drive to access during the event. Additionally, handouts for programs may be printed online and participants are welcome to bring a laptop, tablet, or other electronic device to view the handouts during the program. Free wireless Internet access is provided for programs held at Area L AHEC. We cannot guarantee Internet access for programs held off site. It is the participant’s responsibility to have installed anti-virus software and appropriate applications software for accessing online resources.
Area L AHEC encourages the use of laptops, tablets, or other electronic devices to view handouts or other resources during programs. Area L AHEC does not provide technical support for personal electronic devices. Area L AHEC is not liable for any lost, damaged, or stolen electronic devices. Please be sure your electronic device is fully charged upon arrival; we cannot guarantee access to electrical outlets to charge your device during a program. As a courtesy and to minimize distractions for speakers and program participants, we ask that you please refrain from using your cellular phone until after the program has ended.
While Area L AHEC makes all efforts to ensure a constant room temperature, it is recommended that participants bring a sweater or jacket to assure maximum comfort.
Photos taken at Area L AHEC Workshops and Events are used in promotional publications and online to educate the public about Area L AHEC, its services, and programs. Photos may be transmitted to news media outlets for distribution. Photos may also be displayed on web sites and social media pages maintained by Area L AHEC, as well as stored on file for future use. Please make AHEC staff aware if you do not wish to be included in photos.
