2017 Conference Terms & Conditions


Program:

RICA reserves the right to change the program at any time. Every effort will be made to ensure a program of equivalent standard.

 

Deductions:

Railway Industrial Clearance Association membership dues or conference payments are not deductible as charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes, but may be deductible as ordinary and necessary business expenses.

 

Behavior:

RICA reserves the right to prohibit entry of any person to a RICA event, or eject any person from a RICA event based on behavior deemed inappropriate by RICA staff and/or its agents and others working under its authority.

Canvassing by delegates is strictly prohibited at RICA events and forums. Promotional materials may not be distributed at the event/forum except by event sponsors. Delegates violating this policy will be asked to leave the event and RICA members may have their membership revoked.

 

Cancellation Policy:

Cancellations received by May 15, 2017 will receive a refund, less a $150.00 administration fee. All cancellations received from May 15 through June 1, 2017, will receive a 25% refund. All cancellations received after June 1, 2017, will receive no refund as the hotel guarantee for food & beverage has already been submitted. No credits will be given for items included in the registration fee (e.g. meals) if attendee and/or a guest do not attend the particular event.

 

Privacy Policy:

RICA is concerned with the protection of your privacy. We support the Privacy Principles contained in the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth), as amended. RICA collects and stores your personal information for the purposes of providing membership services, education and training programs, and improving and promoting products and services, and membership status in various ways.

 

Image Release:

In registering for RICA events and conferences, delegates grant permission to RICA, its agents and others working under its authority, to take and to have full and free use of video/photographs containing their image/likeness. It is understood these images may be used for promotional, news, on-line/multimedia, research, and/or educational purposes by and for RICA. Delegates agree that they are not entitled to remuneration, residuals, royalties or any other payment from RICA in respect of their image/likeness or its use. Delegates release, discharge, and hold harmless, RICA and its agents from any and all claims, demands or causes of actions that they may hereafter have by reason of anything contained in the photographs or video. Should a delegate not agree to the above image release, they must advise RICA by contacting us on our website.

 

Registration Notice:

RICA annual conference event registration rates include annual RICA membership dues. In the event of substitution, the RICA membership will be provided to the attending individual. In the event of cancellation, RICA will retain a minimum of $150 administrative fee and will apply this to membership dues for the cancelling individual.

 

Registration and Payment:

Payments for Early Bird Registrations must be received no later than June 1, 2017. Payments received after this date will be charged the full conference price. Payment in full is required by the event date.  Late payment (attendance without payment by the event date) is at RICA's discretion, but if allowed, registration fees received after the closing date incur a late fee of $150.

 

Substitution Policy:

Should a registrant be unable to attend, substitutions will be allowed up to Friday, June 2, 2017. No substitutions will be allowed after this time. There will be a $100 administration fee per substitution along with an additional $150 annual membership fee for the substituting attendee. The original registrant will retain their annual RICA membership.

 

Travel & Hotel:

Attendees are responsible for securing their own travel and accommodation and making payment for such. Cancellation of hotel reservations and/or any travel expenses incurred are the sole responsibility of each individual. RICA does not make any guarantees or in any way warrant the conference hotel, other conference venues, or any form of transportation unless specified by RICA.
