3 Selecting your executive committee

“The executive committee is elected at each annual general meeting (AGM)”[Strata living: What you need to know about living in your strata community(July 2011 FT045). NSW Office of Fair Trading, pp. 11].

For your executive committee to be effective it is hugely beneficial that it comprise people with the right motivation and enough expertise, experience and commitment to look after your investment and amenity well. Selection of executive committee members is by far the most important decision of your ongoing ownership rights. Get this correct and you should have a firm but inclusive management group solving issues with smarts and balance and overseeing a harmonious and flourishing building and living environment. Get it wrong and watch the problems emerge!

Relevant NSW Legislation: Strata Schemes Management Act (1996)
