Relevant notes from the explanatory memorandum

100. This sections deals further with the dignity of the Enactor by providing for the appointment of Honorary Directors, who are appointed in respect of household places (category H) (an Honorary Director place).  While Honorary Directors are, despite the title, substantively appointed directors of Urabba Parks, such appointment does not confer, within the system of government, any powers in relation to policy-making.  Also, it is not required to hold office as an Honorary Director to exercise the powers of the Enactor under internal law; the Manager General is not appointed a director under this section.

101. In addition this section also regulates related party benefits of the Enactor by limiting the ability of a member of the Enactorial Household to receive benefits from an entity in the control group of which Urabba Parks is Head unless it is an exempt benefit or approved benefit.  Subsection (5) provides occupiers of household places (category H) are connected entities of Mister Enactor.

102. These provisions ensure that any related party benefit is substantively approved by persons independent of the Enactorial Household, which is essential for Urabba Parks to run as a not-for-profit entity as required under ACNC Governance Standard 1.
