A society or association may carry out an activity for the benefit of a group, such as a society, organisation, strata, social club, charity, not-for-profit organisation, incorporated body, or co-operative. These types of groups will usually have a governing 'committee' made up of president/chair, treasurer and secretary.

To set up a membership and accounts for your society or association, you will need to provide copies of the following documents.

1. Copy of minutes from your last committee meeting, signed by at least two named signatories, stating:

    • the membership and account is to be opened at P&N Bank.
    • the committee members to be added as authorised signatories.
    • how many signatures will be required to operate the account.

2. Identification documents - all signatories will need to open a membership profile with P&N Bank. You can do this by attending a branch with the required documents and primary photo identification or by returning certified copies to PO Box 8609, Perth BC 6849.

3. Complete and sign a non personal membership application form and finalise your membership.
