Explanatory note

General policy statement

The purpose of the Girl Guides Association (New Zealand Branch) Incorporation Amendment Bill (the Bill) is to confirm the powers of the Girl Guides Association of New Zealand Incorporated (the Association) to do all things necessary or desirable for ensuring the welfare of the New Zealand Branch, including the disposition of property on terms that may be inconsistent with the requirements of section 6 of the Girl Guides Association (New Zealand Branch) Incorporation Act 1942.

Some of the Association’s long-held properties have become uneconomic to hold, given the Association’s financial circumstances, and no longer meet the needs of the Association or its members.
