Our latest round of Community Education Seminars were held in Cairns and Townsville last week delivering the latest information on the North QLD Insurance Readiness Program and a Strata MythBusters session busting many common misconceptions in the strata industry.

If you missed out on these sessions, you can find out more on the North QLD Insurance Readiness Program by attending a webinar being held later this week. We also head to South East QLD later in the month to continue on the MythBusters sessions in all 3 SEQ regions.

Hosted by Smart Strata foundation Partner, Archers the Strata Professionals these sessions featured three industry experts to present on the topics. North Queensland Strata Title Inspection

Program Manager Angela Verhaaf of James Cook University opened the sessions guiding the audience through program development, registration and future delivery timelines. She will also be providing a future article contribution combining some of the feedback received during the presentation Q & A to ensure the wider strata community has a thorough understanding of the program and how to best utilise the initiatives it offers.

Strata Community Association QLD are hosting a members only webinar with Strata Title Inspection Program Manager Angela Verhaaf presenting on the program and are taking questions prior to the session that can be submitted here.

Commissioner for Body Corporate and Community Management Chris Irons and Strata Law expert Frank Higginson of Hynes Legal provided an entertaining yet informative presentation busting many common myths including those submitted by the audience during the sessions.
