Every yr, the IDEA World Convention brings together hundreds of exercise professionals and health coaches who share a passion and enthusiasm for getting individuals shifting. Of course, it’s instructional, with periods led probably the most knowledgeable and skilled business leaders. But, in many ways, the convention can also be a celebration – a place for exercise professionals to inspire, encourage and encourage each other to change the health of their communities.
At ACE, we consider IDEA World is an event that each exercise skilled should expertise at the least once. However, not each exercise skilled has the opportunity to attend, typically due to financial issues. Thanks to Peter and Kathie Davis, the pair that based IDEA in 1982, financial issues will not be a barrier for a handful of conference hopefuls.
This yr, Peter and Kathie Davis established an IDEA World Convention Scholarship Fund in recognition of the distinctive work of exercise professionals and health coaches who're making a distinction in their communities. The Davis’s will award up to five scholarships to attend the 2018 IDEA World Convention in San Diego, California, June 28-July 1. The scholarships will embrace the complete value of registration and journey expenses (i.e. flights, ground transportation, lodge, meal stipend).
