The latest issue of Common Ground (the BCCM newsletter) has now been published.
Foreword by Michelle Scott, Commissioner for Body Corporate and Community Management:
“Happy new year and welcome to our first edition of Common Ground for 2021.
This January edition of Common Ground focuses on the regulation changes that relate to general meetings and some procedural matters, which commence on 1 March 2021. These changes will include:
· how quorums can be modified
· different ways you may receive information from your body corporate
· using an email address as your address for service
· the use of powers of attorney
· documents to be handed over by the original owner at the first AGM.
Our February webinar about general meetings will be the last in our series on the new regulations before they commence. If you have missed any of our previous webinars they have been uploaded to our website, along with copies of the PowerPoint slides.
