The 4th AGM will be held on
Saturday, July 2nd, 2011 at 3:00pm. Just
as the JMC prepares, so must owners prepare for the AGM. Consider the following
- Watch out for AGM
notices posted on the notice board and ATC website.
- Any motion to be
proposed for consideration at the AGM must be submitted in writing and received
by the Property Management Office (PMO) on or before Saturday, June 18th,
2011. All motions must be signed by the proposer and seconded with their names,
NRIC numbers and unit numbers. No one likes surprises - not the committee and
not the other owners. Generally, last minute motions result in conflict,
lengthy discussions and often prevent the committee from gathering necessary
information to give to the owners at the meeting. The proposed motion should
include: a title of the motion, a description of the motion, the motions impact
on ATC and the method of implementation (including materials & costs, if
applicable). Since this is your motion, be ready to present it at the AGM as you are trying to convince the other residents to adopt your motion.
- Read the meeting
notice, agenda and any information sent with the meeting notice. Prepare your
comments and questions. Get ready to discuss resolutions and vote on resolutions.
- Make sure that
you are current with your service charges and any other money owed to the ATC
Joint Management Body (JMB).
purchasers shall not be entitled to vote except by way of a jointly appointed
proxy. This form is available from the PMO.
- Arrive early for
the meeting for registration and plan to stay for the entire meeting so that
your vote counts for all resolutions.
- Consider becoming
a JMC member or volunteering on a special project with a view of helping your
- Elect conscientious
and honorable JMC members. Get to know
their experience and background.
The success of a JMB can only
come from active participation from its members. Whether one participates in
the meetings or volunteers to be a JMC member, owners should know that major
decisions are made at these meetings and should strive to attend each and every
meeting called. By not attending, decisions
can be passed by a small minority that can adversely affect the majority of
residents until it is challenged at the next AGM or EGM.
