Review of rules

In November 2012 the old Victorian Associations Incorporation Act 1981 was replaced with the new Associations Incorporation Reform Act 2012. As an incorporation association, RCLC is bound by the new Act and our Rules must meet the legal requirements of the Act.

RCLC currently has rules based on the old Model Rules for Incorporated Associations. Our Committee of Management looked at options for replacing them and decided that the new Model Rules for Incorporated Associations would best meet our needs and legal obligations.

Differences between old and new rules

The main changes in the new rules compared to the old are:

  • Public Officer’s role is included in the role of the Secretary
  • Members’ rights are spelled out to a greater extent
  • Grievance and disciplinary and appeal procedures are more detailed
