We are moving the Great Plains IDEA Annual Conference to an online format. The GP IDEA staff has tried to anticipate some of your questions and provide easy-to-find answers in this FAQ. If you don't see your question, chances are you aren't the only person wondering it, so please contact us by emailing Kathryn Harth.
Rather than meeting face-to-face in Kansas City, we will use Zoom to schedule virtual meetings. You will still need to register for the parts of the conference you plan to attend and arrive on time at your scheduled meetings by using a URL to get into your Zoom meeting space.
The management team is hard at work creating unique opportunities for you to learn and engage during our virtual conference. More information about these opportunities will be shared in January.
Program meetings will take place on Monday-Wednesday, March 1-3. The GP IDEA staff will work with each faculty coordinator to confirm meeting times prior to registration opening on January 12.
We will be using Zoom to conduct our virtual meetings. Each program will have a unique URL just for their virtual meeting room. URLs will be shared through the Member Portal and listservs prior to the conference.
A link to the virtual conference registration form will be available in January. An announcement will be shared over the listservs when registration is open.
After you register using our online form, you will automatically be sent an email from Rachel Ohmes with the subject line "2021 Virtual Conference Registration." The email will include a summary of your registration.
If you need to make changes to your registration, please contact Rachel Ohmes.
This online version of the annual conference is free to attend. We do ask that you register for the meetings and events you will attend using our online registration form.
Administrators, faculty, staff, and campus coordinators from member universities are invited to this virtual conference. These are all of the same people who are invited to attend when the conference is face-to-face.
We are working on a plan. Stay tuned!
The 2022 conference will take place February 27-March 2 at the Kansas City Marriott on the Country Club Plaza in Kansas City, Missouri.
