Below, you'll find answers to some of our most commonly asked questions:

What should you do on Sunday at 1:00 PM?

Login to virtual room link you provided when you registered and get ready to talk to new students. We'll take care of getting the website set up for new students. You don't need to check in or let us know you're ready.

 Can my current members all be in different places?

 Yes! And to support social distancing requirements, you should either be in different locations or 6 feet apart wearing masks. Just make sure everyone has your virtual room link ahead of time and is ready with their camera on!

 I gave you a Zoom/Teams link and would like to change it to a WebEx room. Can I do that?

 Yes! Email the new link to and we'll get it changed.

 Can I still register?

Registration will be open until 1:00 PM Sunday, so yes. Login to your Engage Page and go to Manage. It will prompt you to register here. Create your own virtual room and add a description and you're all set! If your Manage page doesn't look like the picture below, call us at 989-774-3016 or email to become the primary contact of your organization.
