With legislation imminent, our panel of experts will discuss the key changes and what this means in reality for all stakeholders including how to navigate the upcoming changes. If you are a committee member or building manager, this topic is essential to your role so you can get up to speed with the correct information to make informed decisions.

This week we are eager to announce our first expert Lawyer panellist who will speak at our upcoming education seminars we are hosting across Queensland. Future legal requirements for bodies corporate to implement legislation, compliance requirements, operational adjustments and navigating the changes, are key areas to be discussed.
