    I’m wondering whether you can help me clarify what’s a resident’s right when it comes to attending general meetings. Now I moved to Melbourne and living in a strata-titled apartment, I have been denied to attend general strata committee meetings  (it happens once a quarter). The strata manager said only committee members are allowed to attend general committee meetings and I (a resident) can only attend AGM.

    A question I hope to get help with- Is somewhere I can find the relevant legislation or guideline on whether an owner can attend a general meeting if she/he is not a committee member, in Melbourne Victoria?

    Thank you for your help!

    I can’t find anything in the legislation.  Can one of our Vic readers help?

    (I think you left out the word committee?)

    It’s all in Part 5 of the Owners Corporations Act 2006 VIC.

    It’s not that owners or others can’t attend committee meetings, it’s more that committees in VIC are not required to invite them or even give anyone outside the committee notice of committee meetings.   Committees are required however to keep minutes but they need not distribute those minutes to all owners.  But they do of course become part of OC records.

    I don’t run my committees that way.  I always inform all owners of committee meetings and distribute committee meeting minutes to all owners as well.  And if owners wish to attend, we can consider that request.

    But that’s me.

    Yes, I own an apartment in Melbourne and owners don’t have a right to attend Committee meetings. The Victorian strata legislation is very poor.

    I’m a Chairman of a Committee of Management in Victoria, all owners are invited to an Anual General Meeting and are invited to be a member of the owner’s committee, there is a limit on the number of owners who can sit on the committee, I suggest you attend the AGM and put yourself up for the committee, it’s not a hard process.
