Advocacy in Victoria
Strata Community Association (VIC) (SCAV) represents more than 80% of all professional owners corporation managers, SCAV is vigorous in its representation of its Members and Associate Members, including Essential Safety Measures managers, quantity surveyors, insurers, lawyers, accountants, facility managers, property valuers, building maintenance and tradespeople.
Our advocacy is well integrated into communication, promotional activities and events and aims to strongly influence public policy, laws and budgets. At our disposal is a team with extensive knowledge and skills, with each bringing their unique relationships and ability to influence decision makers within the political, economic and social environments to the SCAV. This vigour is also applied to the engagement and promotion of our sponsors and stakeholders.
Our focus is on improving the operation of the Victorian strata property industry through advocacy to Government. Our reach is national to influence policy and our promotion of this growing sector, including our quarterly national magazine Inside Strata.
