Why are motions for the AGM only accepted 3 months before the AGM date? – Delys, QLD
A: The Body Corporate Regulations detail the timeframe for submitting motions for an AGM. Section 86 (6) of the Body Corporate and Community Management (Standard Module) Regulation 2020 says that ‘a motion submitted by a member of the body corporate may be included on the agenda for an annual general meeting only if the secretary [or Strata Manager] receives the motion before the end of the body corporate’s financial year.’ The AGM process is regulated under the Body Corporate legislation to ensure that all schemes in Queensland adopt a fair and consistent approach.
