Tower Body Corporate are happy to advise our customers that we have become members of Strata Community Association (QLD), the peak industry body for body corporate and community title management (strata management) in Queensland.
What does this mean for owners? Nothing immediate other than seeing a new logo on our webpage confirming membership, but SCA are one of the key bodies driving forward the professionalisation of the body corporate industry and we are excited to be part of the process.
At Tower, we hope to already be meeting a professional standard, but we know that as an industry there is still a long way to go in achieving this. Becoming SCA members gives us an opportunity to play our part in developing and improving the industry for all members.
From an internal perspective, membership means that we sign up to the SCA’s standards for professional and ethical conduct of our business.
It also means all of our staff have to undertake mandatory training to keep up to date with the industry. Over the next couple of years, we hope that SCA will be able to introduce a licensing system for managers, already in place in other states, and this system will lead to a more consistent standard among body corporate managers and better service delivery for customers.
Becoming members also puts us in better touch with the wider industry, to see and hear how others are doing things. That in turn gives us a chance to look at what we do as a company and review where there is room for improvement. Expect some updates over the next few months and, for what it is worth, we are always happy to take on board any feedback : )
The Queensland Branch of the SCA is active in engaging government and other stakeholders in the industry about how it can work better for owners and Tower hope that by swelling its ranks, greater authority is added to the message they are sending out. One way or another, the next decade in body corporate management is going to be a period of constant change and development and we hope to be a part of that to create a stronger industry for all.
