CERTIFICATE OF COMPLETION

For your convenience, your conference Certificate of Completion will be available to download from your Member Profile in your canfitpro INTERACTIVE account, approximately four (4) weeks after the conference.

ATTENDING SESSIONS AND CEC TRACKING

To maintain the integrity of the conference, only paying delegates, volunteers, and those approved by canfitpro are invited to attend sessions. Any attendees found violating these rules will be removed from the venue and their canfitpro membership and certification(s) will be revoked. Please ensure you arrive on time for your session. If you arrive 20 minutes after the session starts, you will have missed a substantial part of the education and will not be eligible for CECs.

HANDOUTS

Session handouts will be available online one week prior and 30 days after the conference.  Handouts will be listed by session number and name and will be subject to availability (as submitted by the presenter). Please remember to print your session handouts and bring them on-site or view them on your tablet or smartphone.

EQUIPMENT

Without the equipment provided by our sponsors, the variety of sessions available to you would be limited. Please help us ensure the integrity of our conference and our relationship with our sponsors by respecting their property. Theft costs everyone. If you are found taking equipment that does not belong to you, you will be removed from the conference and your canfitpro membership and certification(s) will be revoked.

CHILDREN AND BABIES

For the safety and consideration of all concerned, particularly your child’s, children and babies are not allowed into conference sessions at any time. This includes babies in strollers. This is also necessary to maintain the educational atmosphere of the conference sessions. Contact your hotel about childcare and nursing facilities. Children and babies are allowed on the trade show floor but are not permitted to use any of the equipment being shown.

PHOTOGRAPHY, VIDEO, AND AUDIO TAPING

Photography, video, and audio taping are not permitted in any conference session. Delegates found violating this rule will be expelled from the conference without refund.

FRAGRANCE-FREE

While we recognize that deodorant is necessary (especially after an intense workout!), please limit the use of scented products.

FEEDBACK

Your feedback is important to us and we read every evaluation submitted. After the conference, you will receive a link to our conference survey, where you can provide your opinion on every aspect of the Conference. Please take the time to complete the survey and help us provide you with your best conference experience.
