The EVENTPILOT Conference APP is THE single most critical item for the PAPS meeting for both in-person and virtual presenters and attendees. There is also a desktop/laptop version called the Planner. These are both available NOW!


1. You must REGISTER for the meeting in order to LOGIN and gain access to the advanced functions (including access to Live Webinar Sessions), Registration opens later this fall

A. Desktop Planner: Follow this direct link for the Desktop version HERE!, then go to step 6

B. Handheld version for your iphone, android, or other smart device: Follow steps 2-5

2. Download EventPilot app from your app store. RECOMMENDATION: DELETE any previous version of Event Pilot and REINSTALL before you proceed.  Deleting and reloading the app fixes 98% of initial access and login issues. After you delete and reinstall once, you won't have to do it again. The new app ICON will have the word "Virtual" on it.

3. Launch EventPilot

4. When prompted to find an event, enter “PAPS22”. Warning: the code is PAPS 22 NOT PAPS2022... a common mistake.

5. If you already have EventPilot with another event loaded, select "find event" from the menu and then enter "PAPS21". Follow the same steps to reload the other event whenever you want. Warning: The app may struggle at this step if you did not delete and reinstall.

6. LOGIN to the PAPS22 event using the email address used to register as an attendee. Your password is the the last WORD in your name (which might not be your last name). Be aware of our cultural differences: 

a. First name followed by family name is the typical sequence for Western culture

b. Family name followed by first name is a common sequence in Asian culture

c. Hyphenated names are considered one word

d. Spaces between words, even if both are part of a name (such as Van Morrison), are considered two separate words. 

e. Your password is the single last WORD in your full name
