QLD Body Corporate News | June 2023

Welcome to the June edition of Tower News.
This month, the Tower newsletter presents two articles on the same subject – How AI will change body corporate management? The Tower team wrote one, and ChatGPT produced the other.

It’s a minor experiment into the future of work that owners may find amusing – which version of the article did you think was more helpful? As human writers, we may not want to know the answer, but the reality is that every industry in the world has to look at how artificial intelligence can change workflows. Body corporate managers are already starting to think through how the offers we make to our customers will change (and hopefully improve) if we can use advanced computer systems to have reliable human-like interactions. As ever, the future is coming.

Elsewhere this issue:
  • Ground-breaking state-of-the-industry report delivers critical insights into Australia’s strata sector
  • Q: Do you need to ask permission to paint the walls?
  • When can the body corporate – or in some cases, another lot owner – rightfully enter your lot?
  • plus much more..... 

Sign Up For Levy Notices via Email

We continue to encourage as many owners as possible to sign up to receive levies and notices by email. Unfortunately, the post is slow and inconsistent at the moment while emails are fast and guaranteed. Signing up also helps save your plan money as distribution costs lower. We need to receive notification in writing to make the change 'Please send my notices/levies by email' is sufficient.
