    I can't wait for all of this great new information, I'm sure the overview regarding agents and brokers will take at least 30 seconds and end with 'you are screwed':goofy:

    I think they use these sessions to train spanking new government employees on "how to run a webinar" . . . .

    I received an E-mail today from CMS saying that I'm now "wait listed" for tomorrow's CMS Agent-Broker webinar, even though I signed up for it 2 weeks ago.

    It said that if I wanted to, I could enroll in one of the 2 later sessions, but I'd have to cancel my reservation for tomorrow's webinar first.

    If the 7/22/2015 session was full when I first registered, wouldn't REGTAP had told me so at that time...and not wait until 7/21/2015 to tell me?

    Oh, wait a minute. It just occurred to me that we're talking about the toxic combination of government, favoritisms, and priorities. I was probably given a spot 2 weeks ago, but snail-paced Navigators, Ass sisters, or other higher-priority late enrollees gave me the boot.

    I had the same thing happen. Signed up as soon as I received the CMS memo 2 weeks ago. Monday received an e-mail telling me I was on a waiting list the session was filled and gave alternate session times.

    Needless to say I sent back a rather nasty e-mail response informing them to not waste my time and to just send me the date training starts and site I can do my training.
    :D

    How are there even spots in the first place? It's a webinar...

    10 million of us can watch a high-def video of goats sneezing, but the combined forces of our government can't get a few thousand people on a webinar/conference call?

    You are so right, Ray. But like I said, if it's something..anything for Agents and Brokers, HHS-CMS assigns it the lowest priority when it comes to resource allocation. Most of HHS's bandwidth today is being dedicated to higher priority broadcasts...like showing goats sneezing at various speeds, different elevations, etc..

    I got my email ticket to Graceland this morning.
    Maybe I should auction off my seat to the highest bidder?
