What You Need to Know
IGIA Member Ambassadors
Long-time members of the IGIA will be on hand to act as ambassadors throughout convention for newer attendees. These individuals can help
you get the most out of your convention experience by welcoming you at the event, helping you to get signed in, providing guidance, answering your questions and making beneficial introductions. Please be sure to select “yes” to the first-time attendee question on your convention registration so we can pair you up with an ambassador, or just give us a call at 515.270.2628 and ask for Cara Corkrean, and an ambassador will be assigned to you.
IGIA Registration Area
When you arrive in Cedar Rapids and get checked into your hotel room, be sure to stop by the IGIA Registration area. There you can pick up your event name badge, grab an event booklet with schedule, get signed up for IGEF scholarship auction bidding on your mobile phone as well as find answers to any of your convention-related questions.
The convention dress code is business casual so feel free to be comfortable in khaki pants, slacks and short-sleeved shirts. No suits, ties or jackets needed. Summer dresses, crop pants and shorts are also acceptable. We recommend dressing in layers or bringing a long a light sweater as temperatures vary in meeting rooms. We also suggest wearing your golf attire to Wednesday morning’s activities so it’s an easy transition to the afternoon IGIA Golf Tournament.
Consider packing bug repellant, sunscreen, a sweater or jacket, comfortable walking shoes and an umbrella for outdoor activities.
