You will require this approval if you intend to incorporate your association. An association is a society, club, institution or body. Incorporation provides a mechanism for associations to establish a corporate identity and achieve certain legal advantages in return for accepting certain legal responsibilities.
Please note, if you intend to operate the association in multiple states you will need to become a registered Australian body or incorporated as a company limited (both of which are regulated by the Federal Government rather than State Government).
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
