The Committee Vodcasts are conversations with strata committee members and strata experts about how to build effective committees and contemporary issues facing committees. The focus of our conversations will be around the human factors rather than the legal requirements.

 

Facilitator

+ Julie McLean, President of SCA (Vic)

Guest Speakers

+ Nicholas Abbey, Strata Activist & Advocate

+ Catherine Lezer, Director SCA (WA) & Owner

+ David Hamilton, EV Specialist & Owner

 

Catherine, Nicholas and David serve on committees and have very different views, almost opposites, just like every committee.
