Essendon Historical Society - New Rules of Incorporated Association: The 1981 Associations Incorporation Act has now been repealed by the State Government after several years of deliberation. It has been replaced by the Associations Incorporation Reform Act 2012. The new Act creates a new legislative framework for all incorporated associations and this includes new Regulations and new Model Rules. Our old Rules (Constitution) are now not valid and this now requires that we must apply the new Model Rules in as far as they are applicable and suitable to the EHS. The following represents the result of several months work by Bob Chalmers and Terry Scott and these new Rules need to be approved by all members. EHS must submit their new Rules to Consumer Affairs before October 2013 or the Department will impose the Model Rules (unaltered) on EHS. Hard copies will be available at the June Meeting or at the Courthouse upon request. To view our new Rules of Incorporated Assocation, click here.
