We are a 1972 Scheme and we have at least 3 ByLaws that were supposed to be registered during the past 10 years but were not. Do we have to back track and go through the whole process again? What happens if we do nothing? What are the consequences?
Also do we have to adopt the new model bylaws or can we stay with what we have after reviewing them?
Have a look HERE.
You will need to pass and register the other three by-laws as they should have been registered within six months of having been agreed. However, this is a good opportunity to review their intent and wording.
You can't just keep using your previous by-laws - the new ones listed in the link above now apply.
