Payments & Refunds Policy

Payments

ACRNA obtains income only from payment of Individual and Corporate membership subscriptions. Payments will be receipted with an appropriate Tax Invoice / Receipt.

Services & Products

ACRNA is a networking forum and does not offer services or products as such.

ACRNA is a membership association set up to support members with a resource gathering, sharing and development forum, and to provide a network of individuals and corporates who want to actively participate in pursuing control room best practice. Membership of the Association provides those connections through the website, enables active participation in gathering, sharing and developing resources, and financial membership provides discounted registration to attend the annual conference.

Cancellations & Refunds

Individual Membership subscriptions may be refunded as follows:

  • Within 2 months of the payment: In full.
  • Between 2 and 6 months of the payment: Not refundable unless the member seeking the refund, or that person’s representative, presents reasonable grounds in writing to the Management Committee who shall not unreasonably withhold the refund and ensure the refund is made in full within a reasonable time.
  • After 6 months of the payment: No refund.

Corporate Membership requests for subscription refunds will be dealt with by the ACRNA President in consultation with the Corporate Member considering the reasons and implications of each situation.

Conference registration refunds will be dealt with according to the Refund Policy specific to the conference event, each of which will be published with the relevant Conference programme. The Cancellations & Refunds for each conference will be aligned with the event venues’ policies. The reason for this is that ACRNA is a member association in which members carry the risk.

Method of refund

ACRNA will make refunds in Australian Dollars to the account from which the payment originated if practicable, or to another bank account nominated by the refundee. Refunds will be accompanied by an appropriate Tax Credit Note.

Disputes

ACRNA will deal with disputes according to its Rules of Association.

Dispatch & Deliveries Policy

ACRNA does not offer services or products as such and so has nothing of substance to dispatch or deliver.

In its Rules of Association, ACRNA confirms immediate registration as an Individual Member upon the conclusion of the Registration process. An automated confirmation email is sent to the email address registered by the member, and the Members Register is automatically updated.

When a Conference is launched, the registration portal is activated. Upon conclusion of the registration, an automated confirmation email is sent to the email address registered by the delegate, and the Members Register is automatically updated with the member’s selections as a delegate. It is the responsibility of the Conference SubCommittee to ensure registered delegates are given access to the conference proceedings and post-conference resources, and the registered delegates have their confirmation email as the event ticket of admission.

Corporate Memberships are negotiated and confirmed between the ACRNA President and the Corporate Member’s representative and recorded according to those commercial outcomes.
