MEMBERS BOOKING INSTRUCTIONS
How to use our booking system (can be paid by credit card or invoice)
Our booking system uses your email address to identify whether you are a member or not, therefore the system defaults to 1 ticket at a time (you will not be able to select more than one in the basket)
To book your ticket, type in your email and click look up. If the system identifies you as a member, it will autopopulate your information and you can just add any dietary requirements. If you need to purchase another ticket for another member, there is the option to add another in at the bottom of the box (do this as many times as you need for your booking.) Then you will be able to go to the cart and proceed through the checkout as one bulk purchase.
If you are a member, but it doesn't recognise your email address it means you are not linked to your business membership (and it will not apply member pricing to this ticket.)
To solve this you have two options -1) go to https://www.aora.org.au/membership and click the button that says sign up for an account to connect. Put your email in here and click look up, find your business name (it may be listed as the registered trading name of the business) and click connect. Your membership account administrator will need to approve your connection. They simply need to login into their account and approve you.
Option 2) Send an email to Alex (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the subject Membership Connection Needed. In the email please include the full name of the staff member, their email address and the registered/trading name of your business. Alex will endeavour to get your staff member linked as quickly as possible.
Please note, there is no way for us to retroactively apply member pricing to a booked ticket, so you will need to proceed through the process above (this is a one time action for linking staff to membership.)
