MEETING PLATFORM OVERVIEW

The online meeting platform has two parts:
Socio – which participants will use to navigate the conference sessions
Microsoft Teams – which will host the actual meeting sessions and content
SOCIO
Socio is a web application which will allow attendees to easily navigate the virtual conference facility, participate in meetings, and connect with presenters and other attendees. Attendees can connect to the Socio Web Application using the instructions detailed below, and from there, attendees can get updated information on, register for, and join their meeting sessions, all through the Socio Web App.
MICROSOFT TEAMS
Microsoft Teams, which has become very familiar to California Wing members, is the backend platform for vCWC and will host all of the meeting sessions and related documents. However, users will join Teams Meeting sessions through the Socio app, instead of by navigating through the Microsoft Teams app.

 

CONNECTING TO THE MEETING PLATFORM

Once you receive an email from the Conference Registrar that your registration is confirmed, you will connect to Conference Web Application (Socio) for the first time to setup your account.
When you login, enter the email address that you used to register for the conference in the EMAIL field
If you are a California Wing member, enter your CAWG (@cawgcap.org or @cawg.cap.gov) email address
DO NOT select any of the Social Media login options
e.g. CONTINUE WITH FACEBOOK – this feature has not been implemented and attempting to do so will lock your account

CONTACTING SUPPORT

 For connectivity, login, and other TECHNICAL issues there will be support available during the conference via email and a Teams Support Channel.
To initiate a support request, email the support team through this link:
