As with non-profit organisations, corporate members are entitled to one vote at elections and AGM's which is used by a designated representative. A non-profit group may obtain Group Membership.
The company can hold property and can sue and be sued. Companies are registered under the Corporations Act 2001, which is Commonwealth legislation administered by ASIC. A company's registration is recognised Australia wide. A non profit organisation is an organisation that does not distribute its surplus funds to owners or shareholders, but instead uses them to help pursue its goals. As such, any surplus left at the end of the financial year (June 30) is put back into improving the broadcasting equipment and facilities.
Creative Community Radio Incorporated is a non-profit organisation. Registration of a company creates a legal entity separate from its members.
As Fremantle's general community broadcaster means we cater to a diverse range of cultural, social, ethnic, arts, local music, educational, current affairs and environmental groups who would not ordinarily be able to gain access to radio media. We provide a unique and valuable outlet for views, news, music and art where people can voice their experiences, events and knowledge.
Raising funds to enable the station to continue includes Grants, Sponsorship and Membership. Radio Fremantle meetings are held each quarter and the station publishes a quarterly newsletter. Members can stand and vote for positions on the Board of Management at the annual general meeting.

The Association is bound by a set of Rules which have been approved by the Australian Broadcasting Authority
and the Department of Fair Trading. Under those Rules, an applicant for membership is nominated and seconded by existing members but with a policy of open membership, this is a formality.
Membership runs from 1 July of each year until 30 June. Members have until 31 July in which to renew their membership. If renewal is not effected by that time, membership lapses and a fresh application for membership is required.
