Each conference call will last approximately 30 to 45 minutes and have a maximum capacity of 50 callers.  Pre-registration is required and attendance is available on a first come basis.  There is no charge to attend.

We will be utilizing an online meeting application, Webex, to coordinate the conference calls.  Prior to registering for the conference call, you must first download the Webex client, “Training Manager”.  Please click on the following link to download the client: [Training Manager Download.]fter you have successfully downloaded the client, choose the conference call session you would like to attend by clicking on the “Upcoming” tab: [Conference Call Schedule.]

Once you have registered, you will receive a confirmation/instructional e-mail from messenger@webex.com.  If you do not receive the e-mail shortly after you have registered, you may have a spam filter blocking the address.  In this case, please have your e-mail administrator unblock messenger@webex.com from your spam filter.  Also, Webex may attempt to “Setup Training Center” each time you join a session.  Please select “Cancel” if this should happen.  

If you have questions about using Webex or experience any technical issues, please contact our Meeting Planner, Tina Hanachi, at 703-797-6600, or the Webex technical support at 866-569-3239.

Questions about the topics covered at the conference calls may be directed to a Transaction Reporting Assistant.
