The AAPG is unable to provide insurance to cover participants in the IBA program. Participating students and Faculty Advisors are expected to obtain insurance to cover injury, death, illness and loss or damage to personal property during periods of travel associated with the program. To be certain that this issue is fully understood and recognized by participants, all participants (team members and travelling Faculty Advisors) are required to sign the Imperial Barrel Award Release, Waiver and Indemnity Agreement as a prerequisite to taking part in the program. Universities applying with only one team should send the signed agreements to their relevant Section and Region Coordinator before the datasets are released. Universities holding internal competitions should send the signed agreements to their relevant Section and Region Coordinator when the team taking part in the semi-final is known, as a prerequisite of travel. If signed agreements are not received from all team members and the Faculty Advisor in the manner above, the team is liable to expulsion from the program. Check the Rules and Procedure document for this waiver.
