Floodplain Management Australia (FMA) shall not be liable for any loss caused by the cancellation of the conference where such cancellation is due to Force Majeure. The organisers will use all reasonable efforts to conduct the conference despite the intervention or occurrence of any such cause.
In this clause, Force Majeure means circumstances which are beyond the reasonable control of the FMA and which are reasonably likely to affect FMA’s successful delivery of the Event or would make it inadvisable, impracticable, illegal, or impossible for a party to perform its obligations as originally contracted under this Agreement, including: fire, flood, earthquake, extreme adverse weather conditions, failure of electric power, gas, water, or other utility service, collapse of building structures, widespread disease or other public health emergency (including pandemic or epidemic), strike or other industrial action, the outbreak or declaration of war, act of terrorism, revolution or government orders or action (including the declaration of a State of Emergency).
If, as a result of Force Majeure, FMA cancels the Event/s, FMA shall use reasonable commercial endeavours to reschedule the Event.
If FMA is unable to reschedule the Event in accordance, FMA will issue you a non-transferable credit note for the amount of the Fee, which may be redeemed against any appropriate future FMA event for a period of 12 months from the date of issue.
Without prejudice to its obligations FMA accepts no liability and will not be liable for any compensation where the performance of its obligations under this Agreement is affected by Force Majeure.
