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.

She is proud to have helped drive an interactive course for owners and strata managers on how to successfully run a remedial waterproofing project, via Construct NSW’s digital learning platform. And, as a passionate advocate for apartment owners, she is contributing to a three-year study exploring the best approaches to adapting ageing strata-owned buildings.
