ADEQUATE NOTICE OF MEETINGS

Who cares?
Those governing societies and charities are, generally, not too worried about what’s in the organisation’s constitution. However, they should be, as the proceedings of meetings called without adequate notice to members can be declared to be invalid.

Business Numbers – What they Mean for Not-for-Profits

 The New Zealand Business Number Act 2016 provides that incorporated societies registered under the Incorporated Societies Act 1908, charitable trusts incorporated under the Charitable Trusts Act 1957, friendly societies and credit unions registered under the Friendly Societies and Credit Unions Act 1982, and industrial and provident societies registered under the Industrial and Provident Societies Act 1908 are eligible to obtain a New Zealand Business Number (NZBN).
