"The whole strata community owes a huge debt of gratitude to you and the OCN executive. Much appreciated."
3.2 Politics and motivations
It is insightful to compare a strata building's executive committee to a quasi-political process. Strata executive committees can be viewed as a 4th tier of government (behind federal, state and council): being elected, levying taxes (levies) and making laws (by-laws). As we all know, politicians do not have to have specific qualifications to run or be elected. Similarly and unfortunately too, there are no requirements under any Acts for executive committee members to be vetted, qualified or trained.
