Associations Incorporation Act Review

In 2007/2008 the State Government reviewed the Associations Incorporation Act 1987.

This Act allows associations, such as community, recreation, sporting and not-for-profit clubs and societies, to incorporate as legal bodies and limit the liability of members for lawful activities.

There are over 15,000 associations currently incorporated in Western Australia and if you belong to a club or society, it is highly likely it is one. There is more information about incorporated associations available on our INC website.

The Associations webpages will provide you with information about the current law, its requirements, and news of interest to incorporated associations today.

For more information on the status of any current review projects please contact the Branch.
