QLS proposes move from stat body

We’re seeking member feedback on a planned change to our corporate structure. Currently a statutory body, we propose to shift structures to a company limited by guarantee.

This means QLS will reduce some of the more burdensome government compliance regulations including gazetting membership fees, lodging the annual report with Queensland Parliament (with attending complex compliance obligations), and adherence to State Government Document Retention and Purchasing Guidelines and the Government Information Technology Contracting framework.

The intended benefits are to improve QLS’ corporate agility and align us more closely with the operating structures of law firms.

Email your feedback by Friday 31 May 2013 to QLS corporate secretary Katrina North, k.north@qls.com.au or phone 07 3842 5918.
