Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the October 3, 2020 Bodybuilding Competition and Powerlifting Meet are being cancelled. In its place, we will be holding a Zoom conference with workshops relevant to bodybuilding, powerlifting, and issues that trans athletes face. More information will be announced here soon regarding workshop times. We are working on getting a headliner for the conference whom I think we will all love to speak to and who will be holding Q&A. The conference will take place Saturday, October 3, 2020. Those of you who have already paid your IATBP membership and entry fees will be refunded via PayPal.
Here are the steps to take in order to compete at an IATBP event:
- Receive a membership card
- Receive the Competitor’s Handbook that highlight all the Rules and Regulations. The handbook will also answer all your questions about divisions and the structure of an IATBP competition.
