Consultation: Template rules for an unincorporated association
The ACNC, with assistance from Justice Connect NFP Law, is developing a draft set of rules that can be used by unincorporated associations that wish to register as a charity. The template rules may be useful for a small, member-based organisation which is governed by a committee, chiefly does it work through volunteers and has minimal assets.
These rules are being developed as a response to the ACNC observing that this part of the sector has a strong need for assistance with suitable governing rules.
We welcome comments on the draft template rules for an unincorporated association.
