It could be one of two things. The first issue could be that your disclosures are currently up-to-date, but will expire before ACC.20/WCC, so our system is registering you as noncompliant. To make sure everything will stay current through ACC.20/WCC, go to your disclosure library and click on "I agree for the next 12 months" next to each of your three ACC agreements and then on "I Agree & Confirm" at the bottom of the page. This will update all disclosures and agreements under your account.
The second issue could be that you have multiple accounts with the ACC and the account you are updating is not associated with your faculty role. Please contact a member of our Member Care Team at firstname.lastname@example.org or (800) 253-4636, ext. 5603 to see if you have numerous accounts. If you do, they will assist you with merging the accounts and they will contact annual meeting staff to ensure your correct account is associated with your faculty role.
As a case presenter you should work with the session chairs to develop an appropriate case. If you need the chairs' email addresses, you can find them on the summary page of your invitation under the "Presentations" header.
You can put in a request to change your talk title by emailing education staff. Upon receiving your request, they will reach out to the session organizers for approval, and if the session organizers approve the change, education staff will make it for you in the system.
That depends on your specific role within a session. Chairs, Presenters, and Panelists all have different responsibilities within a session. Please refer to the summary page of your invitation(s) to see what type of role(s) you have and the associated responsibilities. We will also send out more detailed information about this in February.
After accepting your invitation, you will be taken to a summary page. That summary page lists all session details, including other presenters within your session and their email addresses. You can find this under the "Presentations" header on the summary page.
