Please note: If you do not follow the rectification instructions within a timely manner, you will not receive admittance into the event in question.

A: Our Events team generally will send out the Zoom link for the Event twice prior to the Event: once mid week leading up to the Event, and again the night before the Event after ticket sales have ended and Membership status of new registrants has been verified. If you do not have the Zoom link for the event the morning of the Event and have double checked your spam folder, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with an Urgent subject line.
