Who does what on a strata committee?
Once a strata committee is elected at an AGM, the positions of the chairperson, secretary, treasurer and other office bearers must be determined.
In New South Wales and Victoria members of the newly elected committee can decide amongst themselves on the office bearers at their first meeting. In Queensland, the owners corporation votes on the roles of the officer bearers at the AGM. One person may fill more than one role on a committee, however, if they choose to do this, they must carry out the responsibilities of each role. An individual committee member cannot make decisions on behalf of the committee; however, the office bearers can perform specific tasks that fall within their roles.
In addition to administrative duties, the committee should set specific, measurable and attainable goals on how they plan to achieve the desired outcomes of the lot owners, and then work together towards making it happen.
