What does a committee do?
The committee is the executive arm of the body corporate.
The committee has the duty of putting into effect the lawful decisions of the body corporate (Body Corporate and Community Management Act Section 101).
It is a group charged with the decision-making power to deal with matters of lesser importance that confront a body corporate during the year.
Every body corporate must have a committee (Standard Module Section 7), unless a body corporate manager is engaged in place of the committee to carry out the executive functions. (Standard Module Section 58), (Body Corporate and Community Management Act Section 122).
The committee is elected yearly at the annual general meeting.

What is available on the SSKB Portal
New Features for Owners using the SSKB Portal
Enhancements have been made to the Online Portal which are being introduced. This change involves the way committee members and lot owners log on to the Portal.
Owners and committee members will be required to create “User Accounts” rather than using the existing method of using their Ids and password.
When logging onto the Portal, owners and committee members will be requested to –
Select “Create”, enter their Login ID and password, select “Upgrade” and enter their email address which will be used as their future login and then create their own unique password.
New owners will be provided with an ID number and reference number initially to logon and then requested to create their user account.
Existing Login Ids and reference numbers will no longer be applicable once the new User Account has been set up.
Committee access to reports and documents will automatically be granted if the email address of their User Account matches the email address recorded in the Committee Records of the Body Corporate Roll. If the email address does not match a committee member can request Committee Access to allow additional Reports & Documents or advise SSKB of the correct email details.
Lot owners will have the ability to link multiple properties if they wish, or share their login with a co-owner and should refer to the website for further information using these features.
