The Association shall not support with its funds or endeavour to impose on, or procure to be observed by its members or others, any regulation or restriction which, if any object of The Association, would make it a trade union.

Prohibition against securing profits for members.

The income, property and capital of The Association shall be applied exclusively to the promotion of its objects and no portion shall be paid or distributed directly or indirectly to members or their associates except as bona fide remuneration of a member for services rendered or expenses incurred on behalf of The Association.
