Todo/Issues for EstablishmentEdit

Please discuss these on the Discussion page.

  • Organisational structure: Should the chapter be an incorporated association, co-operative or a non-profit company?
  • Obtaining an ABN: this can only be done once the above is done
  • Establishment costs: Where will money to set the chapter up come from?
  • Governing committee: How will the organisation be governed?
  • Taxation: Would the chapter be eligible for income tax exemption and deductible gift recipient status.
  • Fundraising: In NSW a fundraising licence is needed to solicit donations for some organisations. Would this apply to the chapter?
