It is the property of ZIWA and may not be used for direct marketing to our members (commercial or non-commercial) without our permission. The reproduction and sale of the ZIWA Directory is strictly prohibited. Each recipient of the Directory expressly accepts this condition and recognises that unauthorised use of the Directory or its contents may lead to loss of membership and the enforcement of other actions available to ZIWA.
Telephone PolicyWhaen to make phone calls: ZIWA Members, please respect the privacy of other members, and USE GOOD JUDGEMENT when making telephone calls or sending faxes. Appropriate times are defined as between 09:00 - 12:00 and 14:00 - 21:00 and preferably not at weekends.
Reservation PolicyReservations for Monthly Meetings must be made no later than the stated deadline date, via the RESERVATIONS section of ZIWA website or by post to the address on the registration form.
Reservation phone calls will not be accepted for Monthly Meetings.
Reservations for Other Events and Interest Group activities must be made with the Chairlady no later than the stated deadline of the event or activity.
Reservations are taken in the order received and bookings are usually not confirmed. In the event of overbooking, those concerned will be contacted by the person responsible for reservations. If cancellations are received, members of the waiting list will be notified.
Cancellation PolicyThe ZIWA Cancellation Policy applies to all events that involve a monetary payment. A member who cancels her participation in an event after the cancellation deadline will be charged the admission price of the Monthly Meeting or Event or the cost for the Interest Group activity, where it states "Cancellation Policy Applies".
The cancellation deadline for events is the reservation deadline unless stated otherwise.
Even when the Cancellation Policy does not apply, members are kindly asked to cancel as soon as possible if they are unable to attend an event for which they have reserved. Such a courtesy will allow any members and guests on the waiting list to participate.
Guest PolicyZIWA members always have priority and guests may attend ZIWA events only when space permits. The guest fee to be charged is 100% of the cost per person. It is the responsibility of the ZIWA member to inform the event’s organizer when bringing a guest.
The ZIWA member is responsible for paying the non-member guest fee. Female guests may not attend the activities or programmes more than 3 times. On the third occasion, it is expected that they join ZIWA.
Guests attending monthly meetings or interest groups should be advised by their hostesses of the guest policy.

Neither ZIWA nor its representatives shall be held responsible for injury, damage, or loss incurred by participation in Club events.
