About this document

This is an all embracing legal document setting out the terms and conditions for a club, group or society as an unincorporated association. By that, we mean any association of two or more people, who have come together to form a club to pursue a common social or recreational purpose. Mutual rights and responsibilities arise from the rules which members agree to – that is, this agreement.

This document provides for how the club will be constituted, who controls its structure, administration and funds as well as setting out its purposes, aims and goals. In law, this type of group is called an ‘unincorporated association’ because, unlike a company, it has not been ‘incorporated’.  Thus, it has no legal identity of its own, beyond the identity of the individual members. These members of course, require rules by which to regulate their association in the pursuit of their common goals.  So if you organize a society, club, group or association of any kind, you will need a document such as this.

Whether you wish to promote riding and equestrian activities, to organize instructional meetings, lectures and competitive events, to organize hacking under appropriate supervision or to be affiliated to the Australian Stock Horse Society or the Arabian Horse Society of Australia and so on, this document is suitable.
