Terms & Conditions

As your local Institute Council, we put a lot of time and effort into arranging a full and varied calendar of CPD events throughout the year to help you, and other members of the Nottingham Institute, to keep up to date and to fulfil your CPD obligations. We also spend money on venues and providing catering. It is disappointing, therefore, when members fail to attend without notice as it potentially deprives another member the opportunity of attending.

In addition, many of the speakers at our CPD events provide their valuable time and expertise on an entirely voluntary basis. Many travel to come and speak to you, our members. We want to avoid situations where members fail to turn up and our speakers finding themselves speaking to empty seats.

If you book on to any event and you find you are unable to attend, we would ask that you kindly let us know in advance so that we can ensure other members do not miss out.

Special Requirements

If you have any special requirements, be these of a dietary, disability or religious nature, please respond to your booking confirmation email with the details.
