We can’t wait to connect with you on May 3! Here are 7 ways to prepare yourself for our upcoming conference:
1. Check-in Early:
24 hours prior to the CODE Conference, you will be receiving your event confirmation pass which will include a link to check-in early online. If you check in early, be sure to grab a name badge on your way into the conference. If you have noted a dietary restriction, be sure to stop at registration to pick up a dietary card to display at your place setting.
*Bonus tip: Quickly skim the attendee list in advance to see who from our community will also be at the CODE Conference.
2. Check out our program:
Once you grab a spot, be sure to read through our printed program, which includes the full agenda, links to a more resources online, a place to jot things down, and a contest if you use the hashtag #CODEConference on social media!
3. Visit our Well-Being Space:
Conversations during the day may trigger emotions or thoughts. If at any point you may need to talk to a professional about any emotions/feelings, or if you are just in need of a quiet place, visit our Well-being Space hosted by Elmwood Community Resource Center located in the Carlton Lobby – first floor.
For parking, check out all the options here. Restrooms are located on the west side off of York 2-4. Gender neutral restrooms can be found on the 2nd Floor of the South Building, labeled as the Family Washrooms.
5. Pre-select your breakout sessions – space is limited:
Because space is limited in each room, be sure to pre-select your breakout sessions in advance. Choose from the three types of sessions (or mix & match!). You’re in charge of your afternoon itinerary.
6. Don’t worry about taking notes:
If you’re like us – there are multiple afternoon sessions happening at the same time we’re interested in. Because of that – we’ll be providing audio/podcasts of each afternoon session, so you don’t have to worry about missing out on the lessons.
7. We know you want to network, so seating is open:
Unless you have a corporate table, seating is open throughout the day. You can choose where and with who you would like to sit.
*Bonus tip: We encourage you to walk around, sit, chat, reflect and get the best out of the day! This is a day packed with learning, networking and growing.
If you have any questions throughout the day, please don’t hesitate to find staff and volunteers with a lanyard that says “Ask Me Anything.”
