Conference hours begin at 9 am with the opening keynote address, and the final sessions will conclude at 4:30 pm. Participant check-in will begin at 8 am. Live Exhibit booths will be open in the morning beginning at 8 am. We will adjourn at Noon for lunch. The Exhibit fair and student poster presentations will be held at the same time, along with a book signing with our keynote speaker Anne Moss Rogers.
Registration Check-in for Live Participants will be located on Level 1 of the Clarke Classroom Building (CB). Signs will be posted to direct you. Our keynote speaker will begin promptly at 9 am – so we encourage you to arrive on campus early to allow you to park, check-in, and find your seats comfortably. Check-in will begin at 8 am. Remember – even if you registered as a Virtual attendee, you are welcome to attend Live – and visa-versa. However, lunch has been ordered per your registration type.
Session Room temperature varies, as do personal comfort levels. We encourage live attendees to dress comfortably, for your preference, at all temperature levels. Bringing a sweater or jacket (which can be removed or worn as needed) is recommended.
Lunch is provided
to those attending in person. We will also provide hot beverage options (coffee, hot chocolate) in the Holland Auditorium (CB 101 AB. Additional snacks and drinks are available in the Fulton Library, or in vending machines throughout the building. Scoops (located in the front of the CB) also has snack and fountain drink/bottled drink options (including ice cream and baked goods) available throughout the day. Food has been ordered according to the type of registration (Live or Virtual). We will do our best to ensure we have sufficient for all, but we encourage you to let us know in advance if you plan on switching your registration type. We will provide special meal options for those who need gluten-free or vegan meal options.
A full schedule of sessions can be found at the conference website (www.uvu.edu/chss/suicide_prevention ). We encourage you to preview the program. There will be ample seating, however, some sessions may fill quickly. We encourage you to take your seats efficiently between sessions. Please help us honor fire code regulations by not sitting on the floor against the walls. Each room is set for capacity based upon campus fire codes.
are provided at the discretion of individual presenters. We do strongly encourage them to share information with you for future reference. We feel that this allows the conference to continue having a positive impact. Some presenters will choose to provide printed materials which will be distributed in the session rooms, and posted in the virtual conference portal. Some presenters prefer to not provide copies of their presentations, or prefer to have participants contact them directly for copies.
CEU Certificates and Certificates of Attendance will be provided following the conference via the email used to register and log in to the virtual portal. NASW, UAMFT, and NADAAC have approved 10 CEUs for the conference - all of which qualify for Suicide Prevention credits. Participants must complete a brief after-session survey/quiz after each session attended in order to receive credit for sessions (DOPL requirement). All surveys will be posted in the conference portal with the session information. Live attendees are welcome to complete a paper-pencil feedback form for those sessions attended in person.
Corona Virus Update: As many of you know, currently masks are not required for Utah. However, we do recommend masking when indoors to help provide extra protection for everyone in the area. We also recommend those attending live follow the suggested safety practices.
- Wash your hands thoroughly and often, and use hand sanitizer after contact with commonly used surfaces
- Avoid shaking hands - fist and elbow ‘bumps’ work just as well when greeting friends and associates
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth as much as possible
- Stay home when you are sick! Remember…your registration allows you to attend the conference either live OR VIRTUALLY! All sessions will be recorded and available in the conference portal for a full 2 weeks (until 5 pm on November 12th) – so there is no reason to expose yourself and others.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you again for joining us!
