Changes to the model rules for incorporated associations have recently come into effect in Victoria (November 18, 2023) and will soon come into effect in the ACT (February 1, 2024).

The changes cover financial reporting thresholds, changes to fee structures, conflict of interest and grievance procedures, virtual meeting attendance rules, clarification of committee member roles and guidance on delegation of authority within a committee or board's membership.

Some of the changes apply only to organisations using the model rules rather than those who draft their own rules (providing that the drafted rules are consistent with the intent of the Act and regulations).

At the national level, changes to the Sex Discrimination Act places greater responsibility on organisations to take a proactive approach to managing psychological risk, in line with their existing responsibilities in relation to physical risk.

How is your organisation affected by these changes? This webinar will provide a broad overview of the changes, suggest a plan of action to ensure compliance, and direct participants to useful resources. Participants will have the opportunity to ask ICDA’s expert trainer their own questions about the changes.

What's a webinar?

A webinar is a seminar that's conducted over the internet.

Viewers watch a remote presentation on their own screens at a set broadcast time and can participate by typing and submitting questions they would like answered by the presenter.

Our webinars are recorded and a copy is sent out to every registrant by default. So if you aren't able to watch the webinar live at the scheduled time, you don't need to do anything apart from register – we'll send you a copy you can watch at your own pace on your own screen.

Why webinars work

You'll learn at a time that suits you.
If you can't join us at the scheduled time, we will automatically send you a recording you can watch at your own pace.

You can ask your burning questions.
Our webinars consist of a presentation followed by an interactive Q&A session where you'll call the shots. You do so by typing your questions during the webinar.

You don't need an IT degree.
There's no complicated software involved. You just need a reliable internet connection to participate. We'll email you instructions at each step too. Simple!
