Zoom Meeting, Registration Required


Registered attendees will receive a Food & Wine box for two people. Pickup locations will be available in Atlanta, Augusta, and Athens the day of the event.


Please be in appropriate attire (business casual) as you are able to share your video. However, we encourage you to dress up as you would for the actual event!


View: All attendees may adjust the display of shared webcams from the top right corner of your screen selecting "Gallery View" or "Speaker View". We suggest selecting "Speaker View" to ensure that the main screen you see will be of the person who is speaking.  Mobile app users should swipe your screens to the right or left to adjust webcam displays. 


Sound: You will be muted upon entry and please make sure you stay muted until we are in the breakout rooms. If you have joined via desktop computer or laptop, you may mute and unmute yourself using the microphone icon, found in the bottom left-hand corner of the Zoom Platform. If you’ve joined from a mobile device, this control is found in the same location.  For participants who have joined by dialing-in, you will mute and unmute using your phone’s audio controls.  Please remember to mute yourself when you are not speaking.  


Video: To the right of the microphone icon, you will find the video camera icon which controls turning your webcam on and off.  You do not have to share your video, but we encourage you to use the video feature during the breakout room portion. We do have Georgia Bio backgrounds you can use. If you are not using a background, please remove distractions from your surroundings. 


Chat: Another feature in this toolbar is the chat, which appears as a speech bubble icon. This function has been enabled to allow you to communicate with staff and other participants. Please be mindful when sending messages that they are going to the intended party and not the entire group. You can contact Kristina Forbes, Ryan Brooks or Ashley Haltom through chat if you are having any technical difficulties.
