The Fine Print

Below please find the policies and procedures for OHIONET's Continuing Education events.

 

Non-OHIONET Members must prepay to attend workshops and webinars. Payment can be made by sending an institutional purchase order or check to OhioNET prior to the workshop or by contacting Rita Bennett in the accouting division to pay by credit card over the phone.

 

Webinars

Deadlines: Registrations for OhioNET webinars close at 11:59 PM one business day prior to the scheduled date.

Confirmations:  You will receive two automatically-generated emails for each webinar you sign-up for.

  • The first confirmation, from workshopregistration@ohionet.org, is sent immediately upon completion of the online registration form. It contains all your registration information (except credit card numbers).
  • The second email confirmation will come, immediately after you complete the online registration form.  This message will come from customercare@gotowebinar.com and will contain a unique log-in link and directions for connecting to the session.

  • If you do not receive either confirmation email, please contact OhioNET to confirm that you are registered.

We record and archive all our webinar sessions.  As a courtesy, all registrants, regardless of their ability to attend in real-time, will receive a link to access the recording, usually within 24-hours of the session.

Workshops

Deadlines: Registrations for OhioNET workshops close at 11:59 PM four days prior to the scheduled date.

Confirmations:  You will receive two emails for each workshop you sign-up for.

  • The first confirmation, from workshopregistration@ohionet.org, is sent immediately upon completion of the online registration form. It contains all your registration information (except credit card numbers).
  • The second email confirmation will come 3 business days before the event from OhioNET's CE Coordinator (Shelly Miller--shellym@ohionet.org).  This will contain any materials provided by the workshop leader and a reminder of the workshop date and start time.
  • If you do not receive either confirmation email, please contact OhioNET to confirm that you are registered.

Morning refreshements, coffee, and tea are provided at all OhioNET workshops, but registrants are on their own for lunch, unless the workshop description says otherwise.

 

Cancellations

If your plans change and you are no longer able to attend an event, please contact us as soon as possible.  This will allow any waitlisted folks an opportunity to attend.

There is no penalty for cancellation of registration 72 business hours or more (excluding weekends) prior to a workshop.

Cancellations with less than 72 hours notice or failure to attend a workshop will result in a charge of the full workshop fee.

If illness or emergency prevents you from attending, please ask someone from your library to notify OhioNET or to attend in your place (if possible).

OhioNET will accept cancellation notices by phone (800-686-8975) or by e-mail (ohionet@ohionet.org).

In case of bad weather, the decision will be made (if possible) to cancel a workshop, and all registrants notified, by noon the day before. If in doubt, please call OhioNET at 800-686-8975.

OhioNET may cancel workshops due to lack of registrants. If a workshop is cancelled, you will be notified at least five days in advance. Every attempt will be made to reschedule the class.
