Cancellation requests should be submitted in writing to the Administrator ( with the bank account name, sort code and account number used to pay the registration fee.  The Society will refund the registration fee paid at day delegate rate, less an administration charge of £25.00. 

Refund of payments for overnight accomodation and the annual dinner will be subject to the Society being able to change the number of delegates contacted to the provider, or there being a refund by the provider.  Late cancellations may therefore receive only a proportion or none of this payment.

When a delegate does not attend without notice, no refund can be issued.
