Accessing the Virtual YAC


Virtual YAC sessions will be streamed live on Tuesday 7 December 2021 AEDT (Sydney time). We will be using Zoom Webinar, attendees will be off camera and on mute. You will be on camera for the networking at the end of the day. The Zoom links will be emailed to you the day prior.



Members of the Actuaries Institute earn two CPD points per hour of viewing and networking. You can log your CPD points via the Virtual YAC entry in your member dashboard and amend the CPD points to reflect the number of hours you spent viewing and networking. Members of other associations need to contact the Events Team to obtain a proof of attendance communication to receive CPD points from their association.



How do I access the Virtual YAC sessions?

Prior to the Virtual YAC, an email will be sent to you which includes the Zoom link and dial-in instructions for each Plenary. A few minutes before the session is due to start, please click the 'Join' link.  You will be prompted to enter your name and email, and then you will join the session.


Is there anything I need to do beforehand?

If you haven’t used Zoom before, please join a test meeting to familiarise yourself with the App.


Do I need to activate the camera or microphone on my device?

No - when you join the session the camera and microphone on your device will be muted. If you have any issues with your computer audio you can dial-in via phone. The email with the link to join the Zoom session will also have audio dial-in details.


How do I ask the presenters a question?

Select Q&A at the bottom of your screen, type your question and click 'Send'. Presenters will answer questions at the end of their session.
