Being a Support Squad member is a fantastic opportunity to be involved behind the scenes, make life-long friends and Inspire the World to Fitness! If you’re reading this you must already know the reputation IDEA has for hosting the most energetic, thought-provoking and cutting-edge events in the industry. Space is limited for this exclusive group; don’t miss your chance and get your application in today!

To learn more about the benefits of joining this program and to apply, please visit this link: www.ideafit.com/assistant.

What should I bring?
Once on-site, you will want to make sure you have your registration confirmation, picture ID, a printed copy of your sessions, water (bring a bottle and refill it at the water stations), snacks, a sweatshirt (sometimes the rooms get a little cool, especially after some exercise), a yoga mat (for mind-body sessions), a notepad and a pen or pencil, business cards for networking, the conference brochure (if you want to change a session), and session handouts.

Will handouts be available for event sessions?
Session handouts will not be available at the event. Attendees should print the handouts they need. Session handouts will be available to print at least 2 weeks prior to the event. To print handouts, click on Session Handouts.

How do I get CPEUs/CECs for the sessions I attend?
Your proof of attendance and CPEU/CEC credits are on your CEC certificate, which you can access anytime after the conference at www.ideafit.com/myeducation.

Which certification agencies offer CECs for this event?
The credits you can earn at this event are recognized by the following agencies: ACE, ACSM, AFAA, BOC, NASM, NFPT, NSCA, W.I.T.S., The Cooper Institute, NETA, NESTA and NFPT. If your certification agency is not listed, simply check with the agency to see what credits it allows.

What is the minimum age for the IDEA World Nutrition & Behavior Change Summit attendees?
You need to be at least 18 years old to attend the IDEA World Nutrition & Behavior Change Summit. In response to attendee requests and to preserve the educational atmosphere of the convention, children under the age of 18 are not allowed in sessions, even to observe.

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.

We’ve made it easier to switch names on event registrations at no charge. If you can’t make it, you may send a colleague in your place by contacting Inspired Service at least 7 days prior to the event (switches are subject to a fee increase based on member status). Contact Inspired Service for further assistance at 858-535-8979, ext. 7, or email at [email protected].
