2022-11-09 Have your say the Incorporated Societies Act

Mark Spooner

In this session we will cover

The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) is consulting on the next steps in implementing the new framework for incorporated societies and those who run them, as set out in the new Incorporated Societies Act 2022. The Act was passed by Parliament in April this year and is the first comprehensive refresh of the rules that govern incorporated societies since 1908. The new framework keeps the best of the 1908 legislation, while collating useful case law in one place and filling in gaps where the rules have been unclear.


The MBIE is now asking for feedback on proposed regulations to support the new regime to function effectively. It asks for feedback on several matters, including how societies’ re-registration will work, the threshold for audits of financial reports, conversion of societies established under other legislation, and the composition of society committees. Submissions close on 22 November. 


Help shape these regulations and  be part of the conversation by attending this lunchtime workshop.


You will learn:

  • more about the changes and what they will mean for incorporated societies.

  • what your organisation will need to do.

  • how to have you say and contribute to the discussion.

  • practical tips for writing a submission.


This session is your opportunity to discuss organisations collaborating on a joint submission.
