We will be updating this page with information on the Symposium, including how to use the event app to stream sessions remotely. (Answers are still being updated – check back as we fill them in!)


How do I register?

Registration will open in May. Stay tuned for rates and sign up information.


What are the group expectations for this event?

Cal-IPC is committed to equity, diversity, and inclusion. We are promoting a Symposium environment that is welcoming, safe, collaborative, supportive, and productive for all attendees. We value our diverse perspectives, expertise, opinions, backgrounds, and life experiences, and understand that this collective diversity is essential to meeting our mission and to this event. Attendees much agree to the Cal-IPC Symposium and Event Code of Conduct to participate.


How do I attend virtually?

First, register as a virtual attendee. The email you use to register will also be your email to access the virtual platform.

We are uploading registrants in batches. The platform will be open for folks to start connecting on October 1. A final email will be going out Tuesday, Oct. 22, with all links and log in information. For the best experience, we recommend using Chrome on a computer or laptop. (Firefox is a good secondary option.)
Emails will be coming from “” and may be caught in spam filters or junk email – Gmail tends to send it to the “Promotions” tab. So look out in those spots for the emails!


How do I get my DPR CEU credits?

Licensed herbicide applicators can receive continuing education credits for many Symposium sessions. To get credit, be sure to sign up for DPR CEUs with your registration. There is an additional fee to cover staff time processing. ($50)

We will be applying for continuing education units from the California Dept. of Pesticide Regulation – 2 units fulfilling Herbicide Laws & Regulations, and likely 12-13.5 hours of “other” units.

In order to receive DPR-CEU credit, you must attend the full session live at the time it is posted, click on the fraud quiz at the beginning of the session, during the session, AND take the quiz questions posted at the end of the session. Enter your name and your valid QAC/QAL/PCA ID number in the quiz. The quiz will only be available at the end of each live session Sessions that qualify for credit will be marked on the Program under the track “DPR” as we get full approval from DPR.


Will the presentations be available online?

Yes! Attendees to the Symposium will be able to see recordings in the Webex App under each session on the Program, about 15 minutes after the session ends. After the event is over, we will download the videos and post them to the Cal-IPC Symposium Archive online.

Attendees to the Symposium will be able to view available PowerPoint presentations as attachments to each session on the Program, along with the Abstracts. The presentations will also be added to the online archive after the event is over.


How do I participate in the Photo Contest?

Anyone can enter! Anyone can vote! Your photos may be used in future Cal-IPC outreach materials such as our website, brochures, campaigns, or reports (with photographer credit, of course). The Photo Contest will be open for submissions July 14-Sept. 14.

Come back to vote, Sept. 15-Oct. 24. All votes will be tallied online, and winners will be announced the final day of the Symposium, Oct. 25.


What is the refund policy?

Please purchase carefully. No refunds.


How do I provide feedback?
