Adapting to the Associations Incorporation Reform Act 2012

The new Act includes ‘transitional arrangements’ to help associations adjust to the new laws. These are outlined below:

  • Status of the incorporated association
    The incorporation date is not affected and the certificate of incorporation remains valid.

  • Statement of purposes
    Is now incorporated into your Rules of Incorporation.

  • Rules
    There are new items that your association's rules must address.

  • Public officer replaced with secretary
    The title Public Officer has been changed to Secretary, the function of the role remain the same.

  • Financial statements
    The old 'prescribed' or 'not-prescribed' reporting structure has been replaced with a three-tiered reporting structure.

  • Ongoing processes
    Transistional processes unlikely to affect many, around becoming incorporated and any issues happening that would be affected by law and under which law they are dealt with.
