Congress Guidelines

To provide the lowest possible registration fee for the highest participation of members and the highest perception of “good value” for their money.

To provide all delegates equal accommodations in four and five-star hotels since these are the kinds of properties to which most Concierges refer their discerning guests.

To carry adequate insurance that guarantees the financial security of delegates in the event of any unforeseen circumstances. UICH « Les Clefs d’Or » will take care of subscribing the adequate insurance. The charge will be reverted to the organizing section. Reimbursement for any costs associated with insurance is to be made to UICH prior to the commencement of the Congress.

Though it is not the purpose of an international Congress to make a profit, should a profit be realized because of high sponsorship levels, 20% of said profit will revert !to the international Treasury for two main purposes: (1) to help us recover some of the costs of mailings and secretarial services in preparation for these meetings; and (2) to help alleviate, if necessary, the financial burden of the next host city. In the case of a third party being involved in the organization of a Congress, they should be paid on a fixed amount of money for a specific mission and not interested in any kind of benefit. A contract clearly presented with the budget is to be made available to the Executive Committee and the Board of Directors prior to the commencement of the Congress.

The President shall write a report, which includes an itemized recap of the budget and financial status of the Congress, and will distribute this report, in writing, within 30 days after the Congress. This report will be included in a Congress review that will be forwarded to the two next organizing sections.

To treat all delegates and guests with respect and friendship as you would treat your most valued clients.

Member sections will not be authorized to organize a UICH « Les Clefs d’Or » Congress if not in full compliance with international statutes and especially Article III and IV of these statutes.
