Terms For IPFA Membership
Joining IPFA as an organisational member indicates acceptance of our terms and conditions outlined below. IPFA reserves the right to amend these terms and conditions from time to time. Prior written notice will be given to organisational members.
We will handle your personal data in accordance with our privacy notice (www.ipfa.org/about-ipfa/privacy-policy).
These terms and conditions are based on our Articles of Association (www.ipfa.org/wp-content/uploads/2022/11/IPFA-Constitution.pdf).
• IPFA provides membership on an annual, corporate basis.
• Membership runs from 1st January – 31st December.
• Membership payments are non-refundable.
• The benefits included in the membership can be extended to each employee of your organisation.
• A full list of membership benefits can be found on our IPFA membership pack.
• We do not permit individual membership, however, we do provide a sole practitioner option for independent consultants.
Membership Application & Payment
Membership is taken out on behalf of an organisation and thus the organisation is liable for payment of the membership invoice. Your Membership application can be submitted on paper, online, or via email.
Once your application has been approved by IPFA, the primary contact will receive a welcome email and your membership will be active.
Membership payment terms are 30 days from the date of the invoice. If after 30 days no payment has been received, your membership may be suspended at our discretion at which point no membership benefits will be available. Once payment has been received full membership benefits will resume.
Payment can be made via debit/credit card (via phone or online payment link) or bank transfer. We reserve the right to remove any of the above payment options or introduce new options at any time.
We reserve the right to increase the price of the membership subscription on an annual basis. You will be informed of any fee increase within your renewal notice. If we discover an error in the price of your membership subscription, we will inform you as soon as is reasonably possible.
Change of Contacts
It is the responsibility of the member organisation to ensure that membership is transferred should the primary contact leave their role. As the membership is taken out on behalf of the organisation, if the membership payment has not been received within 30 days, the organisation is still liable to settle any outstanding invoices.
Membership payment terms are 30 days from the date of the invoice, which is generated immediately upon online membership sign-up. If after 30 days no payment has been received, your membership may be suspended at our discretion at which point no membership benefits will be available. Once payment has been received full membership benefits will resume.
Organisational Membership Under an Umbrella Organisation
Please note that if you have joined as an organisational member as part of a under an umbrella organisation, the benefits of membership differ slightly to our regular organisational membership.
Subsidiary or ‘child’ organisations may use their ‘parent’ organisation’s membership, as long as they are a wholly owned subsidiary and do not wish to be represented under a different organisation name or branding. Membership benefits such as hosting, speaking or facilitated introductions are not included.
A separate membership is required, if an organisation is partly owned / wishes to be represented under their own brand / or would like to benefit from the full range of membership services (hosting, speaking, facilitated introductions).
IPFA is committed to protecting your data and complying with our obligations under the GDPR and the Data Protection Act 2018.
