Executive Assistant Network Networking / Social Events Terms & Conditions Of Attendance and Registration
Registering for events
Registration for all EAN Networking or Social Events takes place within our website. By accepting any event invitation and clicking on the appropriate Register button once logged in, Members and Associate Members agree to be bound by the Terms & Conditions of Attendance and Registration for our events. For Associate Members, once they choose to request an invoice be sent to them or utilise their credit card details for payment they also agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of payment and cancellation that apply to all our educational, social and networking events and are detailed above.
Attendance at EAN Networking Functions is typically provided on a free to attend basis for Members and at a cost of $18 plus GST for Associate Members. These figures may change from time to time based on the nature of the event.
Networking and social events are intended to be fun and relaxing however we do require that members attending these function display appropriate behaviour at all times and abstain form rude, offensive or defamatory behaviour either towards other guests, our sponsors, our suppliers or our hosts. Members must also refrain from undertaking any activity at our events that actively promote any product or service they represent directly or indirectly and which it is clear would gain commercial advantage for the owner of the service or product should these gain direct support from Executive or Personal Assistants. Any member found to be behaving in an inappropriate manner will be asked to leave the function in question and will be barred from attending any future events for a period to be determined at the discretion of EAN based on the severity of the indiscretion.
We accept that at times the nature of the role of the EA or PA will mean that members at the last minute are unable to attend our social or networking functions. Irrespective of the cancellation rules in respect of payments which mean that those requesting an invoice will be bound by these irrespective of their attendance or cancellation as will those paying by credit card, all members should be aware that we do expect members to attend our functions when they agree to do so as in most occasions we are disallowing others who might want to attend based on their registration. In light of this we operate a policy that means that any member who fails to attend three functions in any 12 month period, having given less than 72 hours written notice on each occasion, will be barred from attending any future EAN social or networking events for a period of 12 months.
The offices of Executive Assistant Network are located at Suite 4, 27 Old Barrenjoey Road, Avalon, NSW 2107 Australia.
