Owners corporations / bodies corporate are compulsory not for profit organisations. By definition this is an odd creature. We join most groups out of passion for a cause or a pursuit.
We join this one because we buy an apartment and we have no option about membership. We have to belong and we have to contribute, at least financially, to pay the costs of keeping the common property. The halls, the foyers, the outer skin of the development, the gardens, the pools, the garden, the parking, the leaks, the behaviour of children and the bodily function of dogs are all items of business for this group. Whether we choose to participate actively or passively, we must belong. Our lawmakers have determined this is our responsibility.
