Creating a branch

Up one level
A society that has members in a number of regions may want to establish branch societies.

A society that has members in a number of regions may want to establish branch societies.

The Incorporated Societies Amendment Act 1920 sets out the procedure for incorporating branches. This procedure is generally the same as the procedure for incorporating a new society.  

A society may submit an application to incorporate just one branch, or a number of branches may be incorporated as a group. In either case there must be a minimum of 15 members in each branch, a majority of whom consent to the application for incorporation.

Where incorporation is sought as a group, the majority of each branch within the group must consent to the application.
