Strata Meetings

Information provided by Strata Community Association Victoria (SCAV)

Some Companies have already made the decision to defer Annual General Meetings (AGM) or move to online technology to conduct meetings, although may be doing so with some risk. As the number of cases of coronavirus increases across the country, and as Government advises more details on social distancing, each Owners Corporations will need to consider whether there are risk factors which would lend themselves to a cancellation or a postponement of an AGM, such as;

  • Demographics and vulnerability of the attendees
  • The presence of confirmed or presumptive cases of coronavirus in the community
  • The ability to arrange for social distancing in the venue of choice
  • The expected volume of attendees at the AGM

When it is all said and done, some meetings may be considered a low risk and you may decide to proceed as planned. If so then your risk management should start with a COVID-19 Notice to be included in the meeting pack and for display at the meeting venue.
