Meals are mostly included: breakfast is included in Alia’s preferred hotel partner’s stay, lunches provided, and one group dinner on Day 1 is included. All travel costs and arrangements are the responsibility of the attendees. Summits are held at the Alia Innovation Hub (1000 University Ave W, Suite 230, St. Paul, MN 55104). Creative billing and payments for Summit fees are available such as payment in installments, over two fiscal years, to include travel, or whatever special arrangements must be made to accommodate budgetary constraints or goofy rules you may have to follow to attend. Certificates are issued, but CEU/CE’s with educational and licensing boards are not filed; however, upon request, Alia will provide you any necessary paperwork (e.g., faculty credentials, learning objectives, course descriptions, etc.) for you to seek CEU/CE approvals from your specific licensing body. Special requests: Our goal is radical hospitality and we will ensure special requests for food, private space (for prayer, regulation, lactation, etc.), or anything else you might need to feel as welcome as possible, are met. Optional preparation work (i.e articles, videos) will be provided to you as an opportunity for enhanced learning.
