Terms and conditions

Confirmation

Submission of the registration form (online, email, or mail) is deemed a binding contract between the applicant and the Institute of Directors (IoD) for attendance at the Director Development course(s)/workshop(s) as nominated on the registration form.

Payment

Registrations received less than one month prior to a course/workshop require full payment at the time of registration. Where registrations are received more than one month prior to a course/workshop without full payment, a standard invoice will be issued and full payment of the course/workshop fee is required within seven days. If payment has not been received, we reserve the right to cancel the booking.

Maximum attendees

To maximise attendee experience and avoid organisational capture, the maximum number of attendees from the same organisation on the same course/workshop (on the same date and in the same location) may be limited at the IoD’s discretion. If your organisation wishes to train a large number of attendees, Boardroom Training is an alternative.

Member rate

If you are an IoD member, you need to login prior to registering online to ensure you receive the member rate. If you register using our registration form (email or mail), enter your membership number on the form to ensure you receive the member rate.

Three attendee discount

To be eligible, all three attendees must be registered at the same time. To qualify all three attendees must be from the same organisation and attending the same course/workshop (the course/workshop may be held on different dates and/or in different locations).

Discounts

Registrations for the Essentials of Directorship discount and three attendee discount must be made via email or mail (ie not online). The courses/workshops must occur in the same calendar year.

No retrospective discounts will be applied

Where a change is made that results in a situation where the discount no longer applies, the on-discounted price is payable.

Attendees cannot receive the Essentials of Directorship discount or the Boards in Action series discount and the three attendee discount. For instance, if an organisation registers three attendees for the Essentials of Directorship, they will receive a 10% discount not a 20% discount.

NZTE Capability Development Voucher Scheme

A number of our courses and workshops have qualified for the scheme and are eligible for voucher redemption. Visit the IoD website to see which courses are eligible. Visit the Regional Business Partner website for more information on the NZTE Capability Development Voucher Scheme or to find your local regional business partner.

Once your voucher is issued, you should register it against an IoD course or workshop on the Regional Business Partner Network. The IoD will then email you a registration form for you to complete and return. Please enter your voucher details when making your booking. We will verify your voucher with the Issuing Regional Business Partner before confirming your place on the course/workshop.

Substitute attendees

Should an attendee become unable to attend the nominated course/workshop, the IoD will accept a substitute attendee from the same organisation.

Notification of substitutions must be provided in writing (mail or email) at least 48 hours prior to the course/workshop commencing. If the original attendee has paid the member rate and the substitute attendee is a non-member, you will be required to pay the difference between the two rates.  

Webinars

No transfers are available from webinars. However a recorded version will be made available for a period of time following the webinar delivery date. Cancellation terms are below.


Transfer and cancellation

The following terms will apply to amendments to the original registration where the individual or organisation cannot provide a substitute attendee.

  • Transfer fees are payable at the time of transferring by credit card payment
  • Non-attendance on the day of a course/workshop is deemed a cancellation and a 100% fee will apply
    • The transfer fee refers to each transfer requested. Annual fee increases may be applied to requests for a transfer
    • All transfers must be within 12 months from the date of the original course booking.

You will receive access to a self-paced learning online module one business day after you register. Once you have received access to the module, there is no opportunity to cancel or transfer from it.

Cancellation by the IoD
The IoD reserves the right to cancel a course/workshop prior to its commencement. In all such cases the IoD shall make full refunds of all fees paid. In the event of cancellation, you agree that apart from a full refund of any fees paid, the IoD is not liable to you for any other costs incurred by you in relation to the cancelled course/workshop paid. The IoD is not liable to you for any other cost incurred by you in relation to the cancelled course/workshop.
