How do I get a registration confirmation if I mail in a registration form?
For all in-person workshops and webinars, please email our event coordinator, Michelle Berge, at michelleb@sscal.com. Include the organization name, person(s) attending, and the name of workshop or webinar. You will receive a reply to confirm your registration.

When will I receive my Fast Pass (for in-person workshops) or Zoom link (for webinars)?
For in-person workshops, Fast Passes are available to download approximately two weeks prior to the workshop. Those who registered early will receive an email notice directing them to go here to download and print the Fast Pass for the workshop. A link to this page will also be available on the registered user's My SSC page under "Upcoming Workshops." A printed Fast Pass is necessary to bypass the registration desk. Registered attendees who do not bring a printed Fast Pass can stop by the registration desk to check in and receive any workshop materials.

When you register for any of our subject-based webinars hosted by Zoom and occurring after July 1, 2021, you will need to complete your registration by clicking on the link provided in the webinar confirmation email. The link will take you to Zoom where you will be asked to enter your name and email address to complete the webinar registration process. Once your registration has been confirmed, you will receive an email with your personalized link to access the webinar. Note that the email will be from Michelle Berge SSC Webinars (no-reply@zoom.us).

A subsequent email reminder will be sent one week before the workshop or webinar, with a final reminder email sent a day or two before the workshop or webinar. 

What if I am registering on behalf of someone else and they will be attending the webinar?
When you register someone else, you are asked to enter the individual’s name and email address. They will receive a webinar confirmation email at the email address you provided. From that point, they should follow the instructions for receiving their Zoom link included above under When will I receive my Fast Pass (for in-person workshops) or Zoom link (for webinars)?.

How can I access workshop and/or webinar resources?
Resources for all of your registered workshop and webinar resources can be found on the user’s My SSC page under “My Workshops.” 

You can access your My SSC page by clicking on the “My SSC” link located at the top right corner of our website next to the “Login/Logout” button.  If you do not currently have an account for our website, you can create an account using your local educational agency email address by clicking on the Login button and selecting “Create New Account.” If you need assistance accessing the resources or creating an account, please contact Rebecca Arent at rebeccaa@sscal.com.
