About this unincorporated club rules and constitution template
This is a constitution or set of rules to regulate your management of any straight forward club, society, association or other organisation that is not a registered company.
You can use it to manage a charity - remember to register it with the Charities Services.
If your organisation will make a profit, that money will of course be subject to tax.
Use it for any group interest. Examples are:
- sports club
- collectors' club
- enthusiast club (like a bird-watching society)
- amateur dramatic or music societies
- an intellectual pursuit
- a political organisation
Not suitable if your organisation is incorporated (under the Charitable Trusts Act 1957, Incorporated Societies Act 1908 or Companies Act 1993).
The law relating to club rules and constitutions
Whether your club is new or has existed for years, you have a simple choice of how to structure it. You can either go for a corporate structure, regulated by the Companies Act 1993 or the Incorporated Societies Act 1908.
Use this document to create a management framework which is not regulated in law. There are no constraints nor publicity. You can edit to create exactly the structure you want.

This document was written by a solicitor for Net Lawman. It complies with current New Zealand law.
"I have found Net Lawman perfect for my needs and saved me thousand of dollars in legal fees getting a lawyer to produce these douc's from scratch. I have used three of the Net Lawman doc's to basically write up the NDA, contract, Non Solicitation agreements to a level of being 95% complete and then used my lawyer to sign off. My lawyer even commented how complete these doc's are.
Thanks guys, great service/product.
Cheers Dean"Dean Harper
"...Yes very useful. I understand the terminology etc as I've seen a fair few legal docs before. Notes are very helpful. Gives me some base insight without the expense of a solicitor! "John K
"I needed an Agreement and Google, as always, was where I headed. I found the Net Lawman site and initially I thought I needed a relationship type Agreement but the Lodger one was absolutely perfect.
I didn't think it would be so easy so would recommend your website to anybody who was looking for an Agreement to suit their needs."Wendy Auger
