I attended the meeting but didn't receive the CEC.

CECs are awarded to GDAA Members who have registered AND were logged into the meeting for the FULL duration.

If you sat in on someone else's webinar feed, then you will not receive the credit. If would like to sit in on a feed and receive credit, contact GDAA Offices with your first & last name and the attendee and we will ensure that attendee's company will be billed for your attendance.

Registration fees are $10/person.

If you're a GDAA member, registered and attended a full webinar and still have not received a CEC, please call 937-293-1170 or email

Do I get a CEC if I request a presentation of a past Webinar?

No. CECs are awarded to those who have registered and attended the Webinar.

I keep getting booted out of the webinar!

We are terribly sorry for your inconvenience and will help you in every way possible.

Here are some things you can try:

  1. Make sure that when you join the webinar, you are using your name and not your sign in email for a display name. The chat plugin cannot handle the "@" and "." as a display name on the off chance that someone was to type in a link. The result is that everyone would be booted from the webinar hosts included!
  2. Make sure that you are the ONLY one using your email address when you sign in. The meeting will not allow multiple users to sign in and will boot the existing one out if a second were to sign in.
  3. Make sure that you have a secure internet connection. If your server is failing, that could be a reason why you're getting kicked out.

If you are still having difficulties, our support team will do their best to help & accommodate you if problems still persist.

What if I am having technical difficulties during the meeting?

If you are having difficulties during the meeting, please call 937.293.1170 or talk through the chat window provided in the meeting. We will work our hardest to get your situation resolved! If we were unable to get your problems resolved by the end of the meeting, you may still be awarded the CEC depending on the issue.
