New Qld Legislation for Associations

Great news - law changes are coming to reduce red tape and improve internal governance for the more than 22,900 incorporated associations in Queensland, including the 3,750 that have registered as charities. 

These law changes were introduced by Queensland Parliament on 16 June 2020 with the passing of the Associations Incorporation and Other Legislation Amendment Bill 2020. The legislation governing associations has not undergone substantial reform since the Associations Incorporation Act 1981 was last amended in 2007.
