Change rules in an incorporated association
Association rules can be changed if the membership agrees by a special resolution or by other provisions in the association's registered rules.
Any rule change comes into effect at the time that the alteration is passed by the membership. The alteration must be lodged with Consumer and Business Services (CBS) within one month of the alteration.
An alteration to the name of the incorporated association does not come into force until it is approved and registered by CBS.
