    Corrie Kuniyoshi

      Hi All,

      This is a reminder to join the AEI training/orientation session (online) today at 2pm (EDT) or tomorrow at 5pm (EDT). Learn what to expect at the AEI Poster Session and how to prepare to meet with faculty recruiters. Details on how to log on and join either sessions are below.

      Thank you,

      Dear AEI candidates,


      As the fall national meeting approaches, we wanted to request that you participate in one of two online training sessions during which you will receive:

      1. Information on what will happen during the AEI poster session and advice on how to communicate with faculty recruiters
      2. Instruction, training and best practices for making the most of your experience at Virtual AEI (for those of you that registered).


      You will need access to a computer connected to the internet and a phone to fully participate - viewing, listening, and asking questions during one of the two webinars below:

      We are very excited that you are participating in the Virtual AEI Forum. Coinciding with the webinars above, on Tuesday morning at 7am MDT on August 23rd, you will receive an email allowing you access to the “Sneak Preview” Virtual AEI environment. This preview environment is open from 7am on 8/23 to 6pm on 8/24 MDT. In order to ensure that you receive this and other event emails, please add acs@theonlinexpo.com to your address book.

      It is imperative that you login to the environment during the Sneak Preview to set-up your profile, test out group and private chats and review the Virtual AEI forum so that you’re familiar with the setup. Upon logging in, you will be taken to the landing page; simply click on Virtual AEI in the directory to be taken into the forum.


      Important Reminder:  In advance of the Sneak Preview, we ask that Virtual AEI Candidates run the following computer checks well in advance to determine if your computer is properly configured for successful interaction in the virtual environment. These checks must be run on the computer you will be using the day of the live event.

      System Check: https://vts.inxpo.com/scripts/inxpo.nxp?LASCmd=AI:4;F:APIUTILS!10&

          Just a quick note to apologize to those of you who were inconvenienced by the change of plans for the conference call scheduled for Tuesday at 2 pm Eastern Time.  I was all set to kick-off the orientation session when the ACS building started shaking...  I thought things were fine when it stopped and things were still in place.  Then the fire alarm went off (being a chemist, I take fire alarms seriously), prompting me to leave the building and the conference call.


          As Amy promised, we have rescheduled that session.  I hope those of you who weren't on the call today will be able to make one of the following sessions.
