The Associations Incorporation Act 2015 commenced 1 July 2016.
Key features of the new law are Associations must review and update their rules as well as introducing a number of changes regarding:
- financial reporting,
- the rules,
- becoming incorporated and
- membership of incorporated associations
The West Australian Car Club (Inc) has started this process and expect to complete the required actions during 2017, well ahead of the 30 June 2019 deadline.
The first step is to compare the existing constitution, linked above, with the checklist provided by Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety. A checklist completed for the West Australian Car Club (Inc) is available to view here.
The WA Car Club committee considered the Model Rules prepared by the Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety and made adjustments to reflect existing membership arrangements. A draft believed to be suitable for use by the WA Car Club is available here. A Special General Meeting is required to vote on and adopt the new rules.
Note: When looking at the DRAFT WACC Constitution keep in mind the following:
- Text with yellow background changes the 'model rules' to match as close as practicable our existing constitution.
- The document contains guidance notes, in light red text, provided by Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety and these notes will be removed from the final version.
