Course Summary

A practical guide to changes to the laws governing incorporated associations

Course Details

The laws governing incorporated associations in Western Australia have changed.  The Associations Incorporation Act 2015(WA) commenced operation on 1 July 2016 and has:

  • repealed and replaced the Associations Incorporation Act 1987 (WA);
  • made provision for corporate governance, financial accountability and matters relating to rules and membership of incorporated associations;
  • imposed specific eligibility requirements on members of the management committee of an incorporated association.

All existing associations will have a transition period of three years to review and update the rules of their association to ensure compliance with these new laws.

Elizabeth Tylich will provide an overview of the changes, and will assess the practical impact of the changes on the day to day management and governance of incorporated associations in Western Australia.
