Template Association Constitution & Explanatory Notes

In line with the Associations Incorporation Act 2015 (the Act), and to make the transition in bringing Association constitutions up to date and in line with the Act, Netball WA have developed a template Association constitution.

The template can be used in its entirety with the highlighted sections required to be filled out with the Association’s specific information/requirements or sections of it can be added to existing constitutions to bring them in line with the Act.

Whilst the document has been heavily scrutinised and Netball WA have been informed that it does comply with the Act, we advise anyone utilising the template to do their due diligence prior to submitting the completed document to the Department of Commerce. If any changes are made to the template Netball WA recommends that legal advice is obtained prior to submitting the finished document.
