Q: What are the rules concerning the actual time of day when a AGM is held? Last year ours was commenced at 3pm with the consequence that only 7 out of 24 lot owners were able to attend?
A: Though the strata legislation is silent on the point, some general rules do apply. While the timing of the AGM is at the discretion of your strata manager or strata committee, that discretion must be exercised in good faith and in the best interests of the owners corporation.
The timing should be reasonably convenient to the members of the owners corporation. The timing should not “intentionally” be selected to prevent certain owners from attending.
