Webex Tips

  • We highly recommend that you download and install the Webex Meetings app in advance.
  • You’ll need a device with a microphone and speakers or a headphone connection, and ideally a camera.
  • We recommend you use a computer rather than a mobile device to take full advantage of the Q&A and polling features.

University Credit: The University Credit Season Pass is a new benefit to members attending CTA Statewide Conferences. CTA Members, through attending online conferences live or through watching recordings, will be given the opportunity to accumulate the hours of professional growth needed to qualify for university credit units (15 hours per one unit) across the entire season of statewide conferences. As a benefit to members, CTA will cover the cost of enrollment with CSU Chico, normally $75/credit. The Season Pass begins with the 2020 LGBTQ+ Issues Conference and ends with the 2021 CTA Special Education Conference in April. Click here for more details on the University Credit Season Pass.

Professional Growth Hours: Professional Growth credit will be available at no cost for CTA members and will be based on the number of sessions you attend. Confirmation of professional growth hours will be emailed within two to four weeks after the conference.
