Start an association

Are you considering starting an association? There is a great deal to keep in mind, but it is neither difficult nor complicated.

This is what you need to do:

  • Gather together a group of people who share a common interest. Three people are enough to form a non-profit association, but in practice, more are needed to really get it going.
  • Decide upon what the association is going to do  and write suggestions for by-laws.
  • Hold a meeting where you form the association, a so-called incorporation meeting.

Write minutes containing information about:

  • Forming the association.
  • Accepting suggestions about by-laws with the association's name, goals, etc.
  • Members of the board - chairperson, secretary, and treasurer.
  • Membership fees.
  • Signatures from the chairperson, secretary, and treasurer.

Directly after the meeting, the chosen board takes part in an inaugural board meeting. With this, the association's work is underway.

The municipality offers several types of grants which associations and groups can apply for. Contact association services if you have any questions; we will be happy to help you.
