Delivering a clear and precise statement of the law and comprehensive practical guidance this book addresses the formation, administration, and financial management of unincorporated associations and the commonly occuring problems that arise. As well as content on practical matters such asrules, committees, and registration of names, the book gives clear guidance on the classification of unincorporated associations and on distinguishing them from other forms of clubs. It also addresses disciplinary action against members, as well as both tortious and contractual liability and civilcourt procedure, providing a complete source of reference for those involved in advising all types of unincorporated associations. The appendices provide specimen sets of rules and procedure for disciplinary action giving practical guidance and equipping the reader with invaluable time saving tools.
