Can the Patron of an incorporated society hold an executive

Customer Question

Can the Patron of an incorporated society hold an executive position within the society at the same time as being the Patron

The statute which covers this, the Incorporated Societies Act, does not prohibit this. A ptron is not a statutory officer of a society, and is an honorary position. But if they want to become directly invloved at the executive level, there may be a small possibility of a conflict of interest. But that is not something which would disqualify them, as the patron role is not something which would conflict with the executive role in virtually all circumstances
