Sched FAQs

What is Sched?

Sched is a platform that offers One State attendees an easy way to sign up for Conference & Capital Day events. Events are organized by type, including Conference & Capital Day sessions, receptions, and more. Sched also shares information about all our One State speakers, as well as which sessions they’re participating in.

Do I need to use Sched if I'm attending One State?

Yes! Sched is how you’ll sign up for all the individual events taking place during the Conference and Capital Day.

Ok, I'm registered for the Conference and/or Capital Day! How do I get onto Sched?

Once you’re registered, you’ll automatically receive an email inviting you to make a Sched account. All tickets purchased before Wednesday, April 5 received an email that day, so check your inbox and your spam filters.

In the email, click “Create your profile + schedule.” Add a password and you’ll be directed to your profile page on the Sched platform.

How do I build my profile?

Sched offers a helpful guide to building out your profile. You only need to do this if you’d like other guests to be able to reach out to you through the platform.

If you’d prefer to keep your profile private, feel free to adjust the privacy settings.
