What To Expect At Virtual JETC

SAME has made the decision to not hold the 2020 JETC in-person as originally planned due to the nation's collective response efforts to COVID-19 and because venues in Washington, D.C., have been declared closed past our scheduled dates. We have replaced the anticipation of our Centennial Kickoff event with the same zeal for a new and unexpected opportunity to adapt and serve our members.

VJETC will allow attendees to take in as much of the content as possible, while being mindful of the additional personal and professional challenges individuals are facing. The program will better allow attendees to fit in their participation within their schedules, which we know are more complex than in a typical year. Sessions can be experienced in a live virtual environment or by recording to access at a later date. PDH credits will be available for all education and training sessions!

Most importantly, VJETC will allow you to connect with colleagues, enhance your knowledge base, and strengthen your company and agency at what is a pivotal time for the industry and the nation.

Get ready to participate by watching our Attendee Orientation!

You will access all sessions through the Attendee Service Center and must select the sessions in which you want to participate at least 30 minutes prior to the start of each session.  Please visit the Attendee Service Center to make your session selections and access the link that will gain you entrance to your sessions!
