Meetings: Other Business & Close

In this and the following sections we take you through the agenda of a strata corporation AGM.

Other Business & Close

Any decisions that are made should be put as a motion. Ask for a mover and seconder. If there is no support by way of a seconder, declare that the motion lapses for lack of a seconder. If there is a seconder then ask for any discussion on the motion. After a two or three speakers for and against, say: “I will now call for a vote on the motion” (You may ask the Secretary to read the motion again so that members are sure of what they are voting on).
“All those in favour? Against? I declare the motion carried/lost”.

Is there any further business?

As chairperson:

  • ask for other business at the start of the meeting – this makes gagging a member easier
  • gagging may be useful where the meeting is running late, others present do not want to discuss the matter
  • it is at the pleasure of the meeting whether it accepts a motion, not on the agenda
  • consult the Three Laws of Meetings and Robert’s Rules under Tools for more help
