Every incorporated association must amongst other things, have a set of rules, often known as a constitution. The rules largely govern the way an association operates and the committee and members of an incorporated association should comply with these rules, unless they are inconsistent with the law.

Members decide the rules which will apply to their incorporated association, its committee of management and to themselves. The Associations Incorporation Act (1987) sets out some basic requirements with which all associations incorporated in WA must comply.
