Substitute attendees

A place at an event can be used by a substitute attendee at no extra charge up to 24 hours before the event start date. If a higher rate is applicable to the substitute attendee (for example due to IoF Individual Member status), the difference will apply and be invoiced upon notification of the substitution.

Please email events@institute-of-fundraising.org.uk with details of the original attendee and the nominated substitute’s details, including name, job title, organisation, email address and telephone number.

Event dates, sessions, venues and postponement

The IoF reserves the right to alter event dates, venues and location where necessary without liability. We will endeavour to give the delegate as much advance notice as possible of any such change via the attendee’s email address provided at time of booking. If the delegate is unable to attend an event at the revised location or date, we will credit 100% of the delegate fee or offer a credit for a future event.

In the event of cancellation a full refund will be offered.

We cannot offer refunds for cancellations due to circumstances outside our control; including adverse weather conditions, transportation issues, major incidents or industrial action. We will not be liable for any other costs incurred including (for example) travel charges or any consequential damages, even if we were advised of these costs.

The IoF reserves the right to change speakers or sessions without prior notification. The most up to date changes to the programme will be found on the event page. 

Two Day Conferences

For tickets purchased at a two day rate -  if you cannot attend one of these days and wish for a colleague to attend part of the conference in your place, this will be treated as two separate bookings and you will be charged the additional amount.

Other terms

The IoF does not accept responsibility for attendees’ personal belongings or valuables, for example laptops or communications devices, brought to courses.  These remain the responsibility of the individual attendees.

In order to be more environmentally friendly, we no longer print delegate lists to provide to attendees on-site. Instead, we will circulate a list of all delegates to registered attendees the working day before the conference. This will include names, job titles and organisations, but not contact details. If you would prefer not to appear on this list, please let us know by contacting events@institute-of-fundraising.org.uk

The IoF reserves the right to remove any attendee from their course should their behaviour be deemed inappropriate.  In such event, no refund of course fees or other costs will be made.
