Where do I find out about CPD training?

All of our training sessions warrant CPD time as we follow a criteria set in place by the Chartered Insurance Institute. You can access a full list of courses by visiting our events & training page. Each event clearly states the number of CPD hours available both on the event page and the programme.

Is there a limit to the number of delegates from the same member company at any one event?

We will sometimes need to limit the number of delegates from each member company, particularly if the capacity is small and it will be 1 if you are a Sole Trader, 2 for an Associate and 4 for Full Members. However, this will always be made clear on the programme and we always try to accommodate members who take priority over non-members.

Do I have to be a voting member to attend the IRLA AGM

The IRLA Annual General Meeting is open to ALL members. The AGM is always followed by an update from our regulators, so a useful thing to attend. If you are not a Full Member (voting member) this does not prevent you from a. nominating a director, b. standing as a director / volunteering for a committee, or c. proposing activities for IRLA.

If I have to cancel my place at a paying event , what are my options?

Payments must be made to Insurance & Reinsurance Legacy Association Limited by BACS prior to booking confirmation. 

  • If monies are not received by the due date the booking will automatically be released. 
  • Membership will end 30 days after the due date is missed. 
  • Transfers will not be permitted any later than 48 hours prior to the event. 
  • In the event of cancellation less than 48 hours, or any non-attendance, for whatever  reason, all monies will remain due. 
  • Non-refundable deposits will be lost if either the balance of monies has not been paid by the due date, or a cancellation/no-show occurs.  

If the cancellation of any IRLA event occurs due to circumstances beyond the control of IRLA, any monies paid by delegates will not be refundable (and any monies due from delegates will remain due) to the extent that IRLA has paid or has committed to pay the costs of running the event and cannot itself obtain reimbursement. 

In all circumstances where delegate interest exists IRLA will attempt to run the event once again. IRLA is not responsible for any travel or other costs incurred by delegates. NO liability is assumed by IRLA for changes in the programme date, content, speakers or venue.
