080. Do we need more diverse strata committees?

Also, a reminder to secure your spot at the Women in Strata breakfast next Thursday 5 October 2017, at Macquarie Bank in Sydney. Register here.

  1. As always, a thought-provoking podcast. I’ve now participated in 4 strata schemes, as tenant, investor owner and resident owner. Big city and regional, self-managed and with SMA. Size 2-12 lots. It has always been a battle to get committee members, and to get owners to meetings. Maybe we were doing too good a job managing the property! Frankly I wish tenants did have a greater say in management; it might engender more interest. [Two years running I drove 500km to find the AGM deferred because I was the only one there!]

    One question: You mentioned that you thought email is outdated. We have finally got a resolution approved to allow greater use of email, and phone meetings etc for our property. Could you comment on alternatives to email? I am especially interested in technology that is accessible to residents/owners of all abilities.

    Many thanks.

    1. Hi Margie, thanks for your comment and question.
      Natalie Fitzgerald is using “Workplace” by Facebook (just Google “Workplace”). Another solution I know other businesses are loving is “Slack”. They are worth checking out to see if they’d be a good fit for your fellow owners.
