Committee Information

Serving on a committee for a body corporate can be a complex and daunting task. It is an important role that carries with it the burden of responsibility and indeed personal liability for negligent acts and omissions. BCP Strata works with members of the committee to ensure your Body Corporate is managed appropriately.

BCP Strata offers all owners access to body corporate records through the internet via the Owners On-Line Portal. This website is powered by StrataMax to provide a convenient and easy way for owners and committee members to keep informed and up to date with information about their body corporate. Records and information are uploaded daily to this site.

As a Committee Member you also have access to the financial records for the body corporate. This is a great tool for Committee Members to keep a track of the finances for their building.

A Brief Overview About Committees:

  • The legislation set out under the Body Corporate and Community Management Act 1997 requires that every body corporate must have a committee.
  • The Committee consists of the Chairperson, Secretary and Treasurer ("executive"), and ordinary members. There must be at least three members but not more than seven members (unless there are less than seven lots).
  • A person is eligible to be a voting member of the committee if the person is an individual nominated for membership of the committee by a member of the body corporate. To find out more about eligibility to become a committee member CLICK HERE and go to Part 2 'Committee Membership'
  • The Code of Conduct for Committee Members sets out basic principals and standards expected of each voting member of the committee. Briefly, the code requires the voting members to:
    • have a commitment to acquiring an understanding of the BCCM Act and the Code
    • act honestly and fairly and with confidentiality
    • act in the body corporate's best interests
    • comply with the BCCM Act and the Code
    • not cause a nuisance
    • disclose a conflict of interest.
