Terms and Conditions Membership subscriptions The membership subscription period is from January to December each year. The subscription for members who join part-way through the year will be calculated on a pro rata basis (quarterly). No refunds or extensions can be offered under any circumstances. Application for Membership shall be made to the membership department of the LACIAC and shall be supported (in the case of an individual applicant) by a personal résumé or (in the case of a corporate applicant) by information sufficient to confirm its bona fides. If your application for Membership has been confirmed by way of written confirmation and you wish to change your mind about joining, regrettably, no refunds can be issued. Membership may be cancelled if, in its discretion, the LACIAC Court considers that a current member no longer meets the criteria for membership, for reasons that have become known to the LACIAC since membership was granted. In this instance, no refunds will be issued. Membership renewals The LACIAC will contact you approximately one month before your Membership is due for renewal, detailing the expiry date of your current membership and further actions you will need to take in order to continue your subscription.
