  • Associations Incorporation Reform Amendment (Electronic Transactions) Bill 2015 – 25 June 2015 – Russell Northe
    able to do a number of things such as lodging annual statements paying annual fees having access to registered rules of an association and having access to a certificate of incorporation change of rules and notifications One key point is that we know some incorporated associations or secretaries thereof may not wish to do some of this transaction work online for example they may wish to write a cheque or pay in person and we are advised that payments can be made through Australia Post We understand that hard copies of applications forms and so forth will be provided upon request The fact is that in a modern world we are transitioning to online transactions in many different forums and giving incorporated associations this flexibility is a good thing In terms of who has been involved with developing the system a question we asked departmental staff was whether a broad range of different incorporated associations and groups have been involved because it is important they join with Consumer Affairs Victoria in developing a system that is going to operate well for them We understand that peak bodies such as Club Victoria Vicsport the Association of Neighbourhood Houses and Learning Centres Ethnic Communities Council of Victoria and the Probus Association of Victoria are some of the organisations that helped Consumer Affairs Victoria develop myCAV Hopefully they have fleshed out any teething problems that may have been experienced There have been some issues with the implementation of myCAV and I will go into them shortly However it is important to understand what myCAV does in this online system and I outlined some of those things earlier If you look at the myCAV website under Key benefits of myCAV the listed benefits include immediate acknowledgement of registration for new associations instant emails with attached documents such as your certificate of incorporation free downloads of additional copies of the certificate of incorporation and copies of your association s rules greater self sufficiency for associations to update and change details simple processes designed to help associations meet their obligations one place to keep track of records and transactions The opposition applauds these benefits On the flip side it is important to understand that there are some activities that cannot be undertaken or completed on myCAV such as the amalgamation of incorporated associations submitting a request for an extension of time to hold an annual general meeting lodging annual statements and winding up or cancelling an association Obviously they are serious matters that cannot be completed on myCAV at this point in time In terms of the system itself we have previously raised some concerns with respect to its implementation Again notwithstanding the intent of myCAV and what it does we support the notion of making life easier for incorporated associations I will outline some of our concerns and with any online system I appreciate the fact that there may be bugs This morning I did an online search for some incorporated associations within my electorate that I could highlight to the Parliament but a message came up on the website saying The search for an incorporated association and online extract request functions are temporarily unavailable We apologise for the inconvenience I understand that section of the Consumer Affairs Victoria website has been like that for a period of time On the one hand we appreciate having online capacity but on the other hand we must make sure that there is access There is no point having the great noble intent of these things all working practically when they do not Recently in the Public Accounts and Estimates Committee PAEC hearings a member of that committee raised concerns with the Minister for Consumer Affairs Gaming and Liquor Regulation and departmental staff about the introduction of myCAV I will read out part of the transcript A question was asked by the member for Gippsland South On a different issue Minister I am aware that there have been a number of problems experienced by incorporated associations with the myCAV system My question is can you confirm that there is compliance with all relevant legislation and acts I digress slightly from the transcript but I had been approached by a couple of local incorporated associations who had had some issues and problems with respect to the introduction of myCAV The concern raised by them was that because they were unable to undertake some activities online they felt they may have been in breach of relevant legislation so the question asked by the member was very important The minister said Could you repeat the question The member for Gippsland South asked There have been problems for incorporated associations with registering et cetera with myCAV I am just seeking assurance that there is compliance with all relevant legislation and acts The minister said the new system went live in April and went on to say We allow the secretary to appoint up to three delegates who will have access online to lodge documents on people s behalf with the register The member for Gippsland South on a supplementary question then said We have had for example a number of associations saying We re in a position to lodge our annual returns but haven t been able to do so So I just am seeking an assurance that no one will be penalised for any problems that have come about Ms Garrett referred that question to the acting deputy secretary regulation with the Department of Justice and Regulation Mr Phil D Adamo who said There will not be any penalisation as a result of not being able to lodge an annual return The system is live as the minister indicated We are also providing support and education right across Victoria in relation to how to use the system As the minister indicated it can be delegated down to delegates if there is complexity with the system We are just working through some minor teething problems but certainly we will not be penalising

  • Homesafe Traralgon service – 24 June 2015 – Russell Northe
    the government said that regional Victorians will also benefit from these transport changes with a 2 00 a m Homesafe Shuttle service from Southern Cross station to Ballarat Bendigo Geelong and Traralgon The Traralgon CBD Safety Committee is a wonderful committee that consists of local police owners of businesses in the entertainment precinct transport operators including representatives of bus and taxi services and community representatives Over a period of time it has been able to deliver on a range of initiatives such as the installation of CCTV cameras around the entertainment precinct under the former coalition government s community safety programs amongst a number of other initiatives One of them is a really important local initiative the introduction of a night service that departs the Traralgon entertainment precinct early on Sunday morning and takes patrons and other commuters back to neighbouring towns Churchill Morwell and Moe That has been a very successful initiative However there are some concerns about the Homesafe initiative as proposed by the government The lack of detail is apparent We are asking the minister to deliver some specifics about the Traralgon service While we assume that it will be a bus service that is yet to be confirmed There was a bit of concern from local business owners that a number of patrons might go to precincts in Melbourne rather than the local precincts We need to know some detail about the stops that will be along the way Will it be a direct service from Southern Cross station to Traralgon or will there be stops along the way Will there be security personnel on the bus if it is a bus There are also concerns in particular from local police about where passengers will depart from in Traralgon and at what time in the morning
