What does “year of seniority” mean as a member of LLIR?

A member’s seniority is equal to the number of consecutive years of regular membership in LLIR. Any year that a member takes as a Leave of Absence is not counted in the tracking of seniority. However, the LOA does not break the number of consecutive years for a member.

Can I register for courses by phone, fax or in person?

Our registration process is only available online through our LLIR website. You will require your own email address in order to register for courses. If you need assistance registering, there will be clinics offered after class during the registration period.

Can I pay for a course on the phone using my credit card?

Our payment process is only available online through our LLIR website. The system accepts either credit cards or PayPal. We are unable to accept payments by phone.

How do I pay my membership and Course fees?

Fees are paid online using a credit card with PayPal processing the credit card information. You do not need to have a Paypal account, but if you do, you can use it to pay your fees.

PayPal is the service provider LLIR uses to process your credit card information. This is much less costly than using a credit card service and these savings are passed to you through lower membership fees.

Is it safe to make my payment for my membership and course fees online?

Online payments are made through the PayPal service provider. Nothing is completely risk-free; glitches and data breaches are possible anywhere. But PayPal is a reputable company with enough security and consumer protection in place to keep you safe online. PayPal’s website is secure and encrypted.

If I am not able to take a course that I have already paid for, can I get a refund?

Course fees are not refundable.

What if LLIR can no longer deliver a course as specified during registration?

If for unforeseen circumstances any course cannot be delivered as specified at the time of  registration, LLIR will offer an alternative, and if possible similar course in place of the undelivered course.

Is there WIFI available at Glendon?

LLIR members can access free WIFI via AirYorkGUEST; however it is not secure. Also, the service is poor on the lower level of York Hall.
