The 53rd APRES Virtual Annual Meeting will be using the Zoom webinar format, which records all parts of each meeting session’s video screen, audio, chat sessions, and poll data. Recordation begins when we open the Zoom portal 30 minutes prior to the beginning of each session and stops recording at the conclusion of the meeting. We are advising you of our protocols to ensure that you understand when you register to attend or make a presentation via an APRES Zoom webinar you are agreeing to be recorded.
All 2021 APRES Annual Meeting recordings (Zoom & Narrated PowerPoint Posters) will be posted to the APRES YouTube channel, immediately following the meeting and will be available to APRES members until January 1st. After January 1st, all sessions will be made public (unless the speaker or author) requests their presentation to be withdrawn due to privacy or publication restrictions. As always, APRES strives to protect the privacy of all and will work to find a solution for those who may have concerns.
