Due to concerns raised by NSW Fair Trading, an Association was at risk of cancellation. Known for its global influence, the Association’s mission involved providing aid and relief to poverty-stricken communities worldwide through housing for widows and orphans, building schools, orphan sponsorships, food distribution projects, clean drinking water and free healthcare. A cancellation of the Association’s registration would have affected not only the staff involved, but the communities being provided with the Association’s essential services.

We assisted the Association in reviewing its governing documents, policies and procedures, proposing reforms and assisting the Association with subsequent implementation. We then proceeded to draft detailed submissions to Fair Trading addressing the concerns raised. Ultimately, the matter was resolved, with Fair Trading accepting the detailed submissions provided and requiring no further response from the Association.
