Rules in an incorporated association

Association rules can be changed if committee members agree by a special resolution. Members need to:

  • be given at least 21 days notice of the proposed resolution
  • vote and pass the resolution at a committee meeting with a majority of at least 75 percent – include proxy votes if the rules allow for them.

Changes by resolution can start immediately.

Name changes need to be approved by Consumer and Business Services before they can take effect.
