South Australian Lockdown
Further to the press conference held by our Premier and Police Commissioner earlier today we are heading into lockdown as of this evening with our staff not able to leave their homes for the next six days at least.
At Strata Management SA we are in a good position to deal with this situation and work from home but it means that property visits will not occur during this period and meetings will switch to telephone conferences with proxy/absentee voting forms available.
Working from Home
All of our staff have the capability to be able to log in to the server from home where they have full access to our database and electronic document management system with all having laptops and additional screens available.
Each manager has a mobile phone and can be contacted as follows:
Adrian Pickles 0450 587 038 firstname.lastname@example.org
Lei Brown 0406 051 434 email@example.com
Howard Flinn 0433 921 884 firstname.lastname@example.org
Paul Stephenson 0499 491 846 email@example.com
Michael Haines 0405 283 154 firstname.lastname@example.org
Office 08 8350 5699 email@example.com
Accounts 08 8350 5699 firstname.lastname@example.org
While there will be some interruptions to our business given that we cannot leave the administration team in the office as we did from March to May (meaning postal items will be delayed) our electronic systems leave us in a strong position to tackle issues and continue operating as per normal.
If you phone and your manager cannot take your call please leave a message so that they know you have called and this will be returned as soon as practicable.
We are here to help with your corporation.
Meetings are a critical part of the running of Strata and Community Corporations and the legislation provides timeframes in which meetings must be held.
At Strata Management SA we have issued agendas for all scheduled meetings to be held in 2020.
Meetings will continue as directed by the office bearers of each corporation but these meetings will make use of teleconferencing or proxies with dial-in options to be provided by the body corporate managers who will be discussing meetings with Presiding Officers of corporations shortly for meetings over the coming days/weeks.
While some corporations may wish to postpone meetings, the phone conferencing is easy for our team to organise and the manager can do so from their mobile, safe in their own home with multiple screens available to keep information at their fingertips.
Our aim is to provide the best possible service to our client corporations in a safe and responsible manner which will be discussed with your corporations Presiding Officer.
We anticipate that there will be no maintenance carried out over the next week other than serious emergency work inline with the Police Commissioners statement for South Australian residents to stay at home.
This situation remains fluid and further decisions may need to be made with short notice inline with Government advice.
The health and safety of our team, our clients, contractors and all families remains our primary concern and we thank you for your patience, understanding and patronage.
As we manage our way through these unprecedented times we thank you for your ongoing support and look forward to continuing to be able to provide our services to you.
