The AGM is always followed by an update from our regulators, so a useful thing to attend. If you are not a Full Member (voting member) this does not prevent you from a. nominating a director, b. standing as a director / volunteering for a committee, or c. proposing activities for IRLA

Q.

If I have to cancel my place at a paying event , what are my options?

Payments must be made to Insurance & Reinsurance Legacy Association Limited by BACS prior to registration acceptance. Reflecting IRLA’s own financial commitments, cancellation and refund of monies paid will not be permitted any later than 12 weeks prior to the event. In the event of cancellation less than 12 weeks prior to the event, or any non-attendance, all monies will remain due, if not yet paid (but IRLA will refund any monies that it is able to obtain by way of reimbursement). If the cancellation of any IRLA event occurs due to circumstances beyond the control of IRLA, any monies paid by you will not be refundable (and any monies due from you will remain due) to the extent that IRLA has paid or has committed to pay the costs of running the event and cannot itself obtain reimbursement. In all circumstances where interest exists IRLA will attempt to run the event once again. IRLA is not responsible for any travel or other costs incurred by registrants. NO liability is assumed by IRLA for changes in the programme date, content, speakers or venue. Transfers may be made up to 24 hours before the event date but will attract a charge.
