TRIP LEADERS – it is imperative for every trip that temporary members/visitors sign the "Acknowledgement of Risk Form". These completed forms must be forwarded to the SAC Secretary for filing as soon as possible after the trip – otherwise, in the case of a claim, the insurer will not acknowledge the risk.
Forms can be downloaded below or from www.bushwalkingvictoria.org.au in Policies & Guidelines (see Risk Management Guidelines for Clubs)

Emergency Contact Procedures
All enquiries about the return of participants from club activities should first be directed to the activity leader, and then to the Emergency Contact Person (ECP) for the activity if the leader cannot be found.
It is the activity leader's responsibility to organise an ECP and advise him/her (in writing) of trip & participant details and what to do if contact is not made by the nominated time.

Travel Cost Reimbursement
Option 1: Preferred. Fuel Cost per car plus 5 cents per km per car to be split equally between the numbers of people in the car including the driver. If appropriate, the cost of running all vehicles should be shared equally amongst all trip participants.
Option 2: 25 cents per km per car split between all trip participants.
