PETALING JAYA (June 10): Annual General Meetings (AGMs) and Extraordinary General Meetings (EGMs) of strata developments can now be conducted physically, according to the government's latest Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) guidelines on strata management for the Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO) phase which began today (June 10).
However, the meetings must be conducted according to the Covid-19 prevention SOPs set by the authorities.
Henry Butcher Malaysia Mont’ Kiara executive director Low Hon Keong said strata property owners will welcome the move to allow physical AGMs and EGMs to resume as important decisions which have been delayed due to the Movement Control Order and Conditional Movement Control Order can now be made.
“During the MCO and CMCO, many major decisions had to be put on hold as the Joint Management Bodies and Management Corporations could not hold their AGMs to make decisions. I am sure there are many residents who want to ask questions about service charges, house rules and maybe on the current financial position of their strata development during this period. Thus, such updates can be made now,” Low told EdgeProp.my.
He stressed the importance of adhering strictly to the set SOPs. Among them are:
“Even though the meetings are allowed to be run for four hours, it is better if we can keep the agenda on the meeting short and to focus on the important matters on hand and wrap it up in an hour if possible,” said Low.
