Reforming Queensland's Incorporation Associations Legislation

McGregor-Lowndes, Myles (2001) Reforming Queensland's Incorporation Associations Legislation. [Working Paper]


Over the last two decades, the role and size of the nonprofit sector has increased significantly. Many Queensland nonprofit organisations are incorporated by the Associations Incorporation Act 1981 (Qld). The article suggests both broad policy reforms and specific amendments to the Act for the better facilitation of nonprofit associations. This is timely as the Government Department responsible for their administration is currently reviewing the Act. The article recommends that reform of the Act is necessary to facilitate the appropriate legislative and regulatory environment of such nonprofit associations. These reforms involve the consideration of some broad policy issues as well as specific legislative amendments to improve the regulatory environment for incorporated associations.
