Can I add a post in multiple groups? 
Yes, you can select multiple groups when creating a post. Members of multiple groups will only receive one notification. Please do not create multiple copies of the same post to avoid sending multiple notifications. 

Booking onto events and training 

Can I book an event or training without an account? 
No, in order to register for any Bond event or training you must create an account. This will allow you to get the right price, amend or cancel your booking. 

I think I am getting the wrong price, what do I do? 
Please contact us at events@bond.org.uk.  

Can I book an event or training for a colleague? 
Yes, you can register for an event on behalf of someone else in your organisation. For group events, you can only register yourself.
