My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question. Please understand this is not legal advise but a guide to assist you.
As a member the constitution should allow you to see the books and the bank accounts.
If they refuse you can report them to the department in your state where associations are registered and also to ASIC. You can also take them to court for the anomalies.
If the committee has been committing fraud they can be personally liable.
You have to look at the constitution of the association and that will give you the details of your rights to the books.
I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. if there is nothing further
thank you for using my services.
If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know
If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.
Please do not forget to leave positive feedback.
