Annual general meetings
Stage 3 Stay at Home restrictions currently apply across regional Victoria and these impact on annual general meetings (AGMs) and other meetings.
Under the restrictions you must Stay at Home and are only allowed to leave home for four permitted reasons, with strict rules on gathering limits. Attending an annual general meeting is not a permitted reason to leave home. Nor are you allowed to gather in public places with more than one person, other than members of your household or have visitors to your home unless it is to deliver care or essential services.

You must hold the meeting by teleconference or other remote technology.
Some matters do not need an AGM and can be resolved by ballot. You can conduct a ballot by:
- other electronic communication.
Owners corporations should also consider what powers and functions they can delegate to the committee and/or manager. This can ensure effective administration between meetings.
Owners corporations should consider limiting the use of their power to decide that certain matters can only be dealt with at a general meeting. This will help provide flexibility for decision-making while physical distancing is needed.
