Incorporation of Associations
An Association is formed by a group of people with a common interest (such as a sporting club, women’s group, church bodies, youth groups and non-government organisations in general).
The members of the association may decide to seek to incorporate the association. The advantages of incorporation are that the liability of the members in respect of debts of the association is limited and that the association may hold property in its own name. To incorporate the association, the members authorize a person to act on their behalf and apply for incorporation.
