This is a general checklist to prepare for speaking in a virtual session.
Before the event, please take some time to test each item below.
If something unexpected happens during the event or session, please follow this guide to solve them.
The 2021 Resilient Virginia Conference is using the Whova platform to allow you to participate in the conference virtually. You can access the conference through your computer’s web browser, or through the Whova app on your smartphone or other mobile device.
Computer Access: We suggest that you use the Chrome web browser to access the Whova Conference website. Some streaming software may have compatibility issues with other browsers. You can download Google Chrome here.
Smartphone Access: If you’re attending the conference via smartphone, please download the Whova app for the best conference experience.

What is the difference between viewing Whova on my computer vs. on the mobile app?
While you can join the conference on either your computer or mobile device, we recommend using both for the best overall experience. Joining the conference on your computer browser provides a better experience for viewing the live session streams, and is the only place where you attend the Career Fair. While you can network with other attendees and participate in the Community Board and virtual meet-ups on your computer browser, you may prefer the on-the-go experience of the mobile app. Plus, with the mobile app, you will receive real-time push notifications about important announcements, messages received from other attendees, or updates in the Community Board discussions you are following.

Do I have to pay to use Whova on my computer or mobile device?
No — Whova is free to download and use.
When attempting to log in to Whova, it says that I am not registered for this event. How do I get access?
First, make sure you are logging in with the email address you used during conference registration. If you still can’t access the event, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
I see that there are concurrent sessions during the conference and I don’t want to miss anything! Will sessions be recorded and available for access after the event?
Yes. All sessions will be recorded and available in Whova until November 20, 2021.
When watching a video, it says that the video is not available due to security reasons.
This could be due to a number of reasons with your IT setup (your browser’s security settings, or anti-virus/security software), so we recommend trying the following:
Can I share this presentation or a recording of the presentation?
No. Please note that the 2021 Resilient Virginia Conference is a closed conference. All information shared, whether disclosed in a presentation or written form, is confidential. This confidential information should not be shared or disclosed with any third party, through personal communications or social media, nor should this confidential information be used for personal gain or benefit. Only attendees who have registered and been approved to attend the meeting will have access to these presentations and recordings of presentations. Please do not reproduce or try to reproduce the information shared within the conference in any form.
Can I tweet or post on LinkedIn about this conference?
Yes! Please visit our website for ways that you can spread the word. You’re welcome to share that you are attending the conference but please do not reproduce the information shared within the conference in any form (e.g., pictures, videos, screen shots, quotes, research findings). Please note that the 2021 Resilient Virginia Conference is a closed event. All information shared, whether disclosed in a presentation or written form, is confidential.
I don’t want my profile to be shown to other participants. What do I do?
When you first sign in to Whova, you will be asked if you would like to share your profile with other attendees. If you would prefer not to share your profile, you can opt out. If at any time you wish to change your response, go to your profile in Whova to change this setting.
How do I change the notifications I receive in the Whova Mobile App?
In the Whova Mobile App, click your profile on the top left hand side of the screen, and then select “Settings,” and then, “Notification Settings.” Here, you can adjust the types of notifications you will receive.
I joined a live stream of a session but I don’t see anything. What do I do?
If you joined early, the stream may not be live yet. If it is past the start time of the session, refresh your browser, or try logging out and logging back in to Whova.
I am setting up a virtual meet up and have selected “Connect with my Zoom account,” but I receive a message that says I cannot authorize the app. What do I do?
Instead of connecting with your Zoom account, we recommend selecting, “Use my own external meeting link” and copying and pasting your Zoom (or other web conferencing link) in the “External URL” field.
The above questions do not address my issue. Who can I contact?
Add a message to “Ask Organizers Anything” in the Community Board or contact email@example.com.
