Resources for Clubs
TEERA promotes the good governance of member clubs and will add resources to this page which may help in that regard.
TEERA will actively encourage the formation of new Tasmanian equine endurance clubs, especially in regions not already covered.
If you are considering forming a new endurance riding club and seek advice - email firstname.lastname@example.org
There are many resources already available, so rather than reinvent the wheel, this page will include links to external resources which have been found to be of high quality or are there under relevant legislation.
In Tasmania, as is similar in all States, incorporated Associations must have Rules. These are to be registered with CBOS (Consumer, Building and Consumer Services). To make it easier to draft a set of Rules, there is template “Model Rules”, which can be adopted as they are or, more usually, adapted to the club’s needs. Rules can be changed, usually at a Special General Meeting, if the need arises. For example, technology may not have been considered for a particular purpose e.g. banking, when the Rules were first drafted. One of the changes made in the 2017 amendment to the Model Rules was to provide for electronic banking.
Underlying the Rules is the Associations Incorporation Act 1964
