How do I become a member of the Executive Committee?

21 October 2013

The following persons are eligible for nomination to the Executive Committee:

  • An individual who is an owner.
  • A company nominee of a corporation that is an owner.
  • A person who is not an owner, but who is nominated by an owner who is not standing for election.
  • Co-owners can only be nominated by an owner who is not a co-owner of that lot; or a co-owner of that lot who is not a candidate for election.

Nominations may either be in writing or given verbally at the meeting. All persons nominated must consent either in writing or verbally at the meeting. Each member has only one vote.  Further details relating to the constitution of Executive Committee members can be found below:
