HOW TO ATTEND THE CONVENTION
This year’s virtual State Convention will be taking place on a platform called “Hop In.” Hop In allows guests to navigate between different virtual spaces — like you’d be able to do in a physical Convention center. MFAT Leadership used the Hop In platform for training sessions in the past. It did feel like we were in a physical convention center, and we caught on in no time.
Delegates & guests will receive their link to join Convention the week prior to the event. Your link will be unique to you — do not share your join link with anyone else, even family members. If you don’t receive your join link by the morning of Convention, please email email@example.com.
