Model Rules: The model rules are a standard set of rules that have been developed for use by associations and are used as a guide to assist with developing their own rules. These rules meet all the requirements of the Act and provide a suitable governance framework for an incorporated association.
An association preparing its own rules should also refer to the rules checklist.

Schedule 1:Explaining the Schedule 1 requirements of the Associations Incorporation Act 2015.
Every incorporated association has a set of rules (often called the constitution) which outlines how the association is operated and managed by its members. The Associations Incorporation Act 2015 (the Act) includes 19 matters (known as the Schedule 1 requirements) that need to be addressed in the rules of the association. Associations have a choice of writing their own rules, or using the Prescribed Model Rules which are set out in Schedule 2 of the Associations Incorporation Regulations 2016 (the Regulations).
This publication has been prepared to assist incorporated associations in developing a set of appropriate rules by explaining each of the Schedule 1 requirements that need to be addressed and how these matters have been addressed in the model rules
