Associations Act Support
The WACA is currently working in partnership with Cricket Australia to update the Member Protection Policy in line with current legislation requirements and best practice.
Any required changes to your club/association rules need to be in place by 1 July 2019.
Responsibility for ensuring that clubs and associations comply with the Act rests with the Commissioner for Consumer Protection under the Department of Mines, Industry Regulation, and Safety.
The Act provides a framework of regulation for not-for-profit organisations such as sport and recreation clubs, societies and community groups in Western Australia leaving the internal management of associations largely to the members. Associations are still able to incorporate as a separate legal body and thereby limit the liability of its members for lawful activities.
Key features of the new law
- financial reporting
- the rules
- becoming incorporated and
- membership of incorporated associations
All club/association management committees should use the website to access the online associations portal and to ensure they comply with the regulations.
