What is your policy on service animals?
If you require an Emotion Support Animal (ESA), please contact IDEA prior to arriving to the event. IDEA requires current documentation (not more than 1 year old) on letterhead from a licensed mental health professional stating (1) the attendee has a mental health-related disability listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM IV); (2) having the animal accompany the attendee is necessary to the attendee’s mental health or treatment; (3) the individual providing the assessment of the attendee is a licensed mental health professional, and the attendee is under his/her professional care; and (4) the date and type of the mental health professional’s license and the state or other jurisdiction in which it was issued. This documentation may be required as a condition of permitting ESA’s to accompany attendees. Under the Americans With Disabilities Act, ESA’s are not given the same rights and exemptions as Service Animals, and approval of ESA’s in public areas and businesses are at the discretion of those entities. If prior approval is not given by IDEA, attendees will be asked to remove the ESA from the event.
What is the event registration cancellation policy?
If we receive your cancellation notice 30 days prior to an event, the administrative processing fee is $100. There will be no refunds allowed after that date or for no-shows. You can cancel anytime prior to the event and a credit will be issued that can be used toward a future IDEA event. Credits issued will expire on December 31 of the following calendar year.
