Gain insights and advice from experts, meet other owners and learn how to make your strata community thrive

One of the most important aspects of OCN membership is the opportunity to network with other members and learn from experts and peers about the big issues that concern strata owners.

OCN organises regular events throughout the year featuring guest speakers on key topics, as well as twice-yearly member meetings and an Annual General Meeting open to all members. We also host webinars, seminars and conferences, and to ensure they are accessible to everyone regardless of time and distance, most of these are recorded and the content made available online for members only.


Gear up for electric vehicles! – 2 December 2020

Thank you to all who attended.

The recording is available to members in the Member Portal along with slide packs and additional resources. OCN’s Electric Vehicle Charging Proforma By-Law is also available for members to purchase ($200+GST). Go to SHOP. 

Members can download OCN’s guide on EV Charging in Apartment Buildings here. (Guide Number 9).

About the event:
There’s a real buzz about the growing uptake of Electric Vehicles (EVs) as part of the transition to a low-carbon Australia. Many OCN members have been asking what this will mean for strata communities and owners corporations in terms of who is responsible for EV Charging facilities and how to get ready for their installation.

The bottom line is – it is not a question of IF EV Charging will be necessary, it is a question of WHEN.

Our on-line webinar event on December 2 will answer some of the big questions and give an overview of what OCs and strata owners need to know.

OCN members will hear from an expert panel discussing the myths and realities of EVs and EV Charging, and learn about a simple and straightforward phased-approach for OCs to consider.

The discussion will be led by Fred Tuckwell, OCN Chair.

Panellists and Speakers:

  • Ross De Rango, Product Development Manager, NHP Electrical Engineering
  • Glenda Stowell, Senior Project Officer, Net Zero Transport Team, Department of Planning, Industry & Environment
  • Josef Blackley-Stocker, Project Officer, Net Zero Transport Team, Department of Planning, Industry & Environment
  • Brian Jackson, Treasurer and Operational Manager of the Waratah Building
  • Deborah Aitken, OCN Board Director

You’ll learn about the different factors that need to be considered to determine what will be right for your building, whether it’s a small building or a strata community with hundreds of residents. The webinar will also include a case study of a new modular approach to EV Charging.  Gain some insights from what OCN and others have been doing to simplify the shift.
