Notice to potential referees:

By contacting the organisers of an event you are giving them notification of your interest and availability. Until the organisers have confirmed with you directly that they wish to use your services, you should not make any non-refundable bookings. Contacting the organisers does not constitute a contract between a referee and the organisers and no financial liabilities arise between the referee and the organiser. Please also check any remuneration or expenses offered with the organisers directly.
