Life is too short to spend in meetings, so anything that begins by getting issues on the table and ends with concrete actions on those issues is a good meeting indeed.
We give you the inside tips on how to run an effective meeting.
In Victoria, how to run an Owners Corporation Committee Meeting is set out in The Owners Corporation Act 2006.
But the work begins before the meeting is called by setting an effective agenda.
A good agenda identifies all the subjects to be canvased at the meeting, so everyone knows what to expect.
