As an association you must relate to various external organisations who all have requirements you must fulfil. These organisations include the Brønnøysund register centre, institutions, support schemes, partners and banks. In order to fulfil these requirements, you need to run the association in a democratic and transparent way. You must conduct a general assembly, update or validate information in the various registers and ensure that members have access to the things they are meant to have access to (such as the association's bank account).
