FEES AND INVOICING
Membership Fees are payable annually in advance. Some events are subject to an additional charge. Event fees chargeable to guests are payable in advance of the event. All amounts payable are exclusive of VAT chargeable from time to time.
EVENTS & THE AGM
WIBF may advertise its events and programmes, including its annual general meeting (AGM) (the Events) and provide details of membership benefits, via the Site, and in a newsletter sent out to Members by email. Whilst we will endeavour to ensure that our Events and programmes are run as advertised, from time to time we may need to re-arrange or cancel Events due to circumstances arising that are outside of our control. Certain Events may be subject to an additional charge and this will be listed on the Site at the time of booking.
Membership entitles the holder to attend, and to one vote to approve the accounts of the previous financial year, at the AGM. You must hold a live membership to exercise your vote.
You will receive a confirmation email with a VAT receipt for any purchases of events or memberships immediately after purchase. We do not issue physical tickets for events.
Save where we are required to offer a refund by law, our events and Memberships are non-refundable. In certain circumstances we may be able to offer you a refund if you are no longer able to attend an event, provided you provide us with at least 24 hours written notice. Please contact [email protected] with details of your query.
The Membership Agreement will automatically terminate on the anniversary of the Start Date, but you will be able to renew your membership for a reasonable period thereafter.

- the Member has not paid the relevant membership fee for the period; or

A Member may terminate their Membership at any time. On termination, a Member shall not be entitled to a refund of any fees (Membership Fees or otherwise) paid.
