The Law Commission has extended the closing date for submissions on its issues paper, Reforming the Incorporated Societies Act, to Monday 31 October.
The commissioner responsible for the review, Professor Geoff McLay, said preliminary consultation & research suggested problems with the act included the lack of adequate processes for dealing with conflicts of interests and resolving internal disputes.
“The 1908 act, in our view, does not require societies to ask the appropriate questions when they are being set up. Nor does it provide incentives for already-existing societies to improve.”
