Associations Incorporation Regulation 2010
Repealed version for 16 October 2015 to 31 August 2016 (accessed 24 January 2019 at 14:55)
11   Disciplining of members
(1)  A complaint may be made to the committee by any person that a member of the association:
(a)  has refused or neglected to comply with a provision or provisions of this constitution, or
(b)  has wilfully acted in a manner prejudicial to the interests of the association.
(2)  The committee may refuse to deal with a complaint if it considers the complaint to be trivial or vexatious in nature.
(3)  If the committee decides to deal with the complaint, the committee:
(a)  must cause notice of the complaint to be served on the member concerned, and
(b)  must give the member at least 14 days from the time the notice is served within which to make submissions to the committee in connection with the complaint, and
(c)  must take into consideration any submissions made by the member in connection with the complaint.
(4)  The committee may, by resolution, expel the member from the association or suspend the member from membership of the association if, after considering the complaint and any submissions made in connection with the complaint, it is satisfied that the facts alleged in the complaint have been proved and the expulsion or suspension is warranted in the circumstances.
(5)  If the committee expels or suspends a member, the secretary must, within 7 days after the action is taken, cause written notice to be given to the member of the action taken, of the reasons given by the committee for having taken that action and of the member’s right of appeal under clause 12.
(6)  The expulsion or suspension does not take effect:
(a)  until the expiration of the period within which the member is entitled to appeal against the resolution concerned, or
(b)  if within that period the member exercises the right of appeal, unless and until the association confirms the resolution under clause 12,
whichever is the later.
