ACEL reserves the right to cancel an event due to a lack of registrations or other circumstance. If ACEL cancels an event, registrants will be offered a full refund. Should circumstances arise that result in an event being postponed, registrants will have the option to either receive a full refund or transfer registration to the same event at the new date.
For events where the registration fee is less than $100 including GST cancellations must be received by ACEL at least seven business days out from the scheduled event to qualify for a refund (less 10% administration charge).
For events where the registration fee is $100 or more including GST cancellations must be received by ACEL at least 21 business days out from the scheduled event to qualify for a refund (less 10% administration charge).
Registrants cancelling their attendance closer to the event than the timelines indicated above will not be eligible for any refund. Refunds will not be available for registrants who choose not to attend an event. Cancellations must be in writing, must be received by the ACEL Business Manager and must be made by the attendee or credit card holder. ACEL will accept the transfer of an event booking to a colleague. In this case the personal nomination of another person to replace a non-attendee is satisfactory.
At the time of promoting ACEL events speakers, topics and times are correct however, in the event of unforeseen circumstances, ACEL reserve the right to alter or delete items from the program that will not affect the overall quality of the event. The meaning of overall quality will be deemed by the ACEL CEO.
ACCEPTANCE AND ALLOCATION
ACEL reserves the right to accept or reject any application for sponsorship at its absolute and unfettered discretion with the return of any deposit paid. Sponsorship and exhibition packages, which may be limited in number, will be generally allocated to those organisations who apply first. Allocation of sponsorship packages and booths regardless of the preference indicated, and alteration of the floor plan is at the discretion of the conference organising committee and conference organiser, whose decision will be final.
APPLICATION AND PAYMENT
Complete the Booking Form and return it to ACEL together with a deposit of 50% of the total payment due. On receipt of the form, a confirmation letter will be sent with a tax invoice/receipt for the deposit amount. Final payment of the remaining 50% is due by 1 September 2012. A tax invoice will be sent to you. Some flexibility with this final payment will be available given varying financial year payment requirements. If your payment is not received by the due date or as negotiated, the sponsorship will become available to other interested organisations. As spaces are strictly limited, returning a Booking Form does not guarantee a place as a conference sponsor. You will be contacted with a confirmation letter to confirm your acceptance as a sponsor.
In the case of your cancellation of sponsorship, notification in writing should be sent to the conference organiser. If the cancellation is received up to 3 months before the event, an administration fee of 25% of the total price is retained. If the cancellation is received within 3 months, no refund is applicable.
The conference organising committee and conference organiser will not be liable for any indirect or consequential damages arising out of a breach of this sponsor/ exhibitor contract.
DETAILED REQUIREMENTS AND DUE DATES

Logos will be requested in both a .jpg and .eps format, high resolution 300dpi. Should an alternative format be received, the conference organisers cannot be held responsible for the quality of the logos displayed in any of the promotional material. In the event that materials, information or artwork required by the conference organisers are not received by the designated due date, their use for their intended purpose cannot be guaranteed. The value of these entitlements will not be refunded if this is the case.
The conference organising committee and conference organiser reserves the right to change the venue and duration if exceptional circumstances demand. In the event of a change of venue and/or duration, the agreement to participate will remain in force as long as the sponsor is informed at least one month before the planned conference. Reasonable endeavours will be used to remedy the impact of exceptional circumstances.

This Policy, and ACELís collection and use of customer information, shall be governed and interpreted in accordance with the laws of Australia and the state of New South Wales. Any disputes arising out of this Policy shall be adjudicated in a court of competent jurisdiction in the state of New South Wales.
Australian Council for Educational Leaders Limited (ACEL) shall document the conditions for use of logos, marks and slogans and shall appropriately manage the rights for usage and representation.
The purpose of this Policy is to ensure the Corporate Logo is presented as a consistent, enduring symbol of our organisation. It is important to preserve the integrity of the design and to ensure that the logo is consistently depicted in any environment. Symbols can be destroyed, or at least have their impact lessened by inconsistent communications.
The Corporate Logo may not appear in anything other than ACELís official communications, channels, products and services materials. The Corporate Logo is not available for use by members or any other party. The Corporate Logo may not appear on another partyís marketing communications as a sign of endorsement, support, sponsorship, etc.
The Corporate Logo is the correct logo to use on ACEL letterhead, websites, printed publications, websites, lecterns, building exteriors, etc.
Approved Variations on the Corporate Logo
It is recognised that there are legitimate reasons for providing an approved variation of the Corporate Logo to other parties in prescribed circumstances, in such circumstances the Chief Executive and/or the eStrategy Manager with the Chief Executiveís permission is authorised to adjudicate.
If a member were to display the Corporate Logo on his/her stationery it might be implied that the member has the endorsement of ACEL and is entitled to represent it. Therefore, there is a need to ensure that members do not use the Corporate Logo.
However, for corporate promotional reasons, it is desirable that members display evidence of their membership of ACEL. Members may download a member logo from the Members Only section when logged in at acel.org.au. Staff may also supply the appropriate logo to a member (contact eStrategy at the National Office).
ACEL frequently enters partnership, sponsorship or co-branding arrangements with other organisations. External parties like government agencies, education companies, conference and event organisers, publishers, other peak bodies, etc. seek permission to publish an ACEL logo that expresses our involvement in the initiative through their promotional products and advertising. Properly managed, there are benefits for all parties.
ACELís Corporate Logo may not be used by other parties.
Other logos may be developed with the approval of the Chief Executive, for example, a Professional Learning Program partner, etc.
When another party sponsors or partners an ACEL initiative and its logo is included in an ACEL communication product, the other partyís logo should not overshadow our Corporate Logo or conflict with the design values of the communication product. The other partyís logo should be no larger than the ACEL Corporate Logo. It is a common practice among commercial organisations to limit the size of the other partyís logo to say, 80% of the key organisationís corporate logo.
To ensure that the correct logo is faithfully reproduced and the proper meaning conveyed, it is necessary for the consenting chair or director to approve that final artwork before publication.
Where the express permission and approval of any ACEL Corporate Logo has been granted, the following terms and conditions apply:
