All such societies are registered under the Incorporated Societies Act 1908.
Times have certainly changed since then – associated laws have changed and life has become a little more complex and so the 1908 Act has been increasingly out of date.
I wonder how many of us have actually read it and/or understood it!!
However, all that is changing and we, as your national body, are aiming to help you come to grips with these changes. Luckily most of it is written in pretty plain English, but even so there is still quite a bit to wade through.
We have put on the website (members’ only section) two items of explanation with another couple to follow.
The next one will be about the Duties of Officers.
Watch out for it.
