Requirement for work email address to sign up for IACCM events

During this time of COVID-19 layoffs and work closures, it seems unfair that a work email address is required to sign up for IACCM events, rather than, say, a Gmail address

This prevents participation and joining some sponsors' webinars

I hope this will be taken into consideration quickly

Hi - thank you for raising this important point and sorry that you are missing out on active participation. In your user profile, you can actually make use of two email addresses - the primary one (that is used in the login process) and a secondary one, that is used if the primary one has issues. You can change these at any time, from your profile page: www.iaccm.com/members/, but clearly you will need to be able to log on to make the change. If you cannot log on for whatever reason, please contact the membership team (memberservices@iaccm.com) and we will happily make any changes for you, once we have verified your identity.

If you don't have a secondary email saved, perhaps now is the time to think about adding that. If you are currently associated with a Corporate membership and things have changed, you can always elect to leave the corporate membership and become an individual member. You can do that here: www.iaccm.com/members/. That way, you will continue to enjoy all the great benefits of IACCM membership.

I am in the situation where I am in between jobs, having finished in my last role at the end of March. The CoVID situation will most likely delay me getting new employment for some time. During this time I am focusing on catching up with IACCM events such as Webinars, AsktheExpert, etc, but find I am excluded from any Sponsors' webinar as I no longer have a work based email address.

Will this continue throughout the CoVID period? I feel it is a little short sighted of the Sponsors to exclude those not currently in employment from their webinars, it is exactly this time when I will have most opportunity to join and expand my knowledge and understanding of the marketplace.

Many thanks

Hi, Thank you for your response. Great to meet you - virtually that is.

I am very sorry to hear you are experiencing an issue registering for the IACCM sponsored webinars.

We continuously contact sponsors asking them to be sensitive to this issue. However, as the registrations are done on their websites, it is a challenge to get them to change their policies.

In any case, the webinar presentations and recordings are typically posted in the IACCM Member Library within 24 hours of all sponsored webinars, so they are available to you to review at your convenience.

Here is the link to the latest content on our resource library. www.iaccm.com/resources/contract-management-resources/

In the meantime, let us know if you need any additional information.

Kind regards

Personally I don't know that this is the case... My personal email address is registered as my primary email address with IACCM; and I always use my personal email address to sign up to IACCM events.

Hi, all internal IACCM events work fine with a personal email address, it was the external sponsored events that would not allow my participation, those where you register through the sponsor's website. This was a few months ago and I have not tried since so things may have changed.
