Meetings: Community titles
Community Titles Act
Section 81 explains who and how a general meeting is called. Section 82 deals with the need for an annual meeting.
Section 81—Convening of general meetings
(1) A general meeting (other than the first general meeting) may be convened:
(a) by the presiding officer, treasurer or secretary of the corporation; or
(b) by any two members of the management committee of the corporation; or
(c) by a member or members of the corporation—
(i) the value of whose lot entitlement or combined lot entitlements is 20 per cent or more of the aggregate value of all the lot entitlements; or
(ii) who holds, or who together hold, 20 per cent or more of the total number of community lots in the scheme; or
(d) on the order of a Magistrates court.
(2) A meeting (including the first general meeting) is convened by giving written notice of the day, time and place of the meeting to all members of the corporation at least 14 days before the date of the meeting.
(3) The day, time and place of the meeting must be reasonably convenient to a majority of the members of the corporation
Section 82—Annual general meeting
(1) The annual general meeting of a primary community corporation must be held within three months after the commencement of each financial year.
(2) The annual general meeting of a secondary or tertiary community corporation must be held within one month after the annual general meeting of the primary or secondary corporation of which it is a member
What does this mean?
Officers and owners can call general meetings of the Corporation. For owners they need to have 1/5th of the lot owners or the owners of at least 20% of of the lot entitlements.
For owners calling a meeting we strongly recommend that the names, lot numbers and signatures of all owners appear on the meeting notice paper.
