A big thank you to the 117 subscribers who took the time out of your busy schedules to complete the Committee Course Challenge. It was great to see so many participants eager to learn the purpose of a Body Corporate Committee in Queensland, how the Committee is elected and how they function.

If you would still like to participate in The Body Corporate Committee in Queensland course, you can do so by clicking HERE. We have made this course completely free and is a great resource if you are a Committee Member already, wanting to be on the Committee or simply want to know more about how a Committee is correctly structured and roles they play.

The results have shown a diverse range of interest within the Strata communities, and asked 20 multiple choice questions after a 1-page breakdown on the Committee roles and responsibilities.

The Committee Board

 The Committee consists of the following positions:

Role of the Committee

A Body Corporate must have a Committee, the Committee is chosen at the Annual General Meeting.



The course then explains Nominations for Committee Positions and what each role entails for each of the positions listed below;

Executive positions

  • Chairperson
  • Secretary
  • Treasurer

1 person can hold 1, 2 or all 3 Executive positions.

Ordinary Members

  • Entire committee must consist of a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 7 Voting Members with all executive positions filled
  • Non-Voting Members – Resident Unit Managers (RUM’s) and Body Corporate Managers (BCM’s) – automatically elected when engaged
  • Small schemes have different rules that apply
