NATSCA COVID-19 Strata Pulse Survey
COVID-19 has changed the way we work and do business. One significant change for the strata management sector has been the way committee meetings are organised, with many committee meetings now being offered flexibly or online via teleconference.
SCA is trying to gather information about the number of organisations undertaking online committee meetings, their effectiveness, lot owner experiences and the future of flexible, online meetings.
This information will aid our understanding of the sector’s response to COVID-19 and aid our advocacy efforts and we would welcome your valuable input.
Please take the short 3-minute survey today!
