Hello SHEARites! The 2016 annual meeting for the Society for Historians of the Early American Republic is only two months away. We are no longer distributing a printed program in advance of the meeting. Instead, we’ve built a mobile app for SHEAR’s annual meeting that has everything you need to know for the conference, including the full program, locations, maps, travel information, links to registration, hotel, sponsors, and exhibitors, and much more. Using the app or the online version of the program, you’ll be able to create your own schedules, received texted program updates, tap into Twitter and Facebook threads, communicate with participants and attendees, take notes, and organize your thoughts.
If you haven’t yet preregistered for the conference, you can still access the online program via the app and/or the mobile version of the program. Just follow these steps:
Step 1: Download the App!
The first thing you’ll need to do is download the app on the device you’re bringing to the event. The app only works on iOS or Android devices. If you use a Blackberry or you want to use your computer and not a smart phone, skip Step 1 and go straight to Step 6 to use the mobile version of the app.
Step 2: Log in
Tap the hamburger icon in the upper-left corner to open the side nav, then Log In.
Step 3: Enter your info
You’ll be prompted to enter your first and last name. Tap Next. Enter an e:mail address, then tap Next again.
Step 4: Verify your account
A verification email will be sent to your inbox. Open it and tap Verify Account. You’ll see your confirmation code has already been carried over. Just tap Finish.
Step 6: Access the mobile version and follow the prompts
Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 405/409-5909 if you have any questions.
See you in New Haven!
