Voluntary non-profit associations are an integral part of community life in Australia. These associations range from local social, sporting or community clubs or associations to large charities and professional or semi-professional sporting associations organized on a national or State level.
A predecessor of this short, practical book was variously described as ""a very useful book", "a practical work, short and crisp", "an excellent publication", "a useful reference book" and "highly recommended".
This new edition is prompted by major changes to the legislation across Australia, including new statutes in the Northern Territory and New South Wales and large amendments in most other jurisdictions. These have resulted in a more consistent approach to the most crucial regulatory issues, a trend towards a more national approach which is reflected in many of the numerous recent cases, especially those concerning disputes and discipline and the rights of members of an association.
This is a must-have for anyone involved in the not-for-profit sector and their legal advisors.
