"Going Green" FAQs
The State Bar of Arizona is "Going Green". All convention materials will be delivered electronically this year! There will be a charge for printed materials. Read answers to some frequently asked questions about the topic.
Since there are no hard copies to pick up, how will I get my materials?
You will receive an email prior to the convention containing a link to your materials. If you prefer to take a printed copy to your seminar, please print it before you arrive at the convention. No hard copies will be available for pick up at the convention.
I'm already paying to attend the convention, so why do I need to pay for printed materials?
As a cost-saving measure, as well as to move forward with the SBA's green initiatives, the Board voted to provide registrants their convention materials in an electronic format. The advantage of "going green" served multiple benefits:
• Allows the Bar to keep registration fees at the 2008 price
• Gives registrants access to additional program materials for seminars occurring simultaneously
• No more lugging around big binders of materials
• Easy access to all materials
Will there be Wifi available at the convention? If so, will it be available in all seminar rooms, public areas, vendor area, etc.?
Yes, free WiFi will be available throughout the facility at this year's convention.
Will I be able to download and print my materials at the convention?
We highly recommend that you print any necessary materials needed prior to attending the convention. If you have a laptop/tablet, we recommend you download your materials to your hard drive before attending the convention. The State Bar will not have printing service available. You can use the resort's business center, but it is very expensive.
How long will convention materials be available for me to download?
Electronic convention materials will be available for 90 days from Friday, June 22, 2012; however, it is important that you download your materials to a more permanent location for future use. Once the 90-day period ends, materials will no longer be available.
I have a tablet. Will I be able to annotate the materials using this device?
Since the materials will be available as PDF documents, you may wish to download a PDF Reader application that will allow you to annotate your document. There are various apps available including, but not limited to, the following:
• Adobe Reader Free
• Good Reader for iPad
• ezPDF Reader
