NSW Department of Customer Service

The NSW Independent Liquor & Gaming Authority (ILGA) has appointed a temporary administrator to the Sydney Portugal Community Club (Club) after forming the opinion that the Board has ceased to be effective as a governing body.

ILGA Chairperson Philip Crawford said the action was taken after an initial investigation into how the Club was being run.
“Where boards of clubs become ineffective, ILGA has the power under section 41A of the Registered Clubs Act 1976 to appoint an independent administrator who then has the functions of the governing body of the club,” Mr Crawford said.
“As such, we’ve appointed Morgan Kelly of KPMG as temporary administrator of the Club. The role of the Administrator will be to administer the affairs of the Club and to report back to ILGA on the financial position of the Club, its governance, and a plan for its future.
“At this early-stage he will investigate the Club’s viability, continue its operations if possible, and assess its future plans in consultation with ILGA and the Club’s members.”
