Five free registrations for activity staff to Spring Quarterly


ICAP is giving away 5 free registrations for activity professionals to IHCA’s Spring Quarterly Education Conference. 

The Iowa Council of Activity Professionals (ICAP) is giving away 5 free registrations to IHCA’s Spring Quarterly Education Conference at the Des Moines Embassy Suites on March 29–30. The conference offers 10 CEUs in topics specifically focused on activity planning and personal development for activity professionals.

To be eligible to receive free registration, the applicant must be employed in the Activity Department of an IHCA member organization and complete and submit the entry form to the IHCA office by March 4. Entries will be evaluated and recipients selected by the ICAP Board members. Recipients will be notified by phone in early March.

Also, please note:

  • Recipients are responsible for transportation to and from the conference as well as any other expenses related to the event including lodging and meals.  

  • The free registration is non-transferable. If you cannot attend the conference, the free registration is forfeited.

The entry form is available in MS Word and fillable PDF.
