Section 35 of the Strata Schemes Management Act 2015 (NSW) states six ways a strata committee member vacates their position:
- The member is no longer eligible to be a member;
- The person was not an owner when they were elected and the individual who nominated them is no longer an owner;
- They resign;
- A new strata committee is elected by the owner’s corporation;
- The owner’s corporation declares that the person’s office as a member is vacated, by special resolution; or
- The person dies.
Therefore, the method for removing a strata committee member is for the owner’s corporation by special resolution to determine that the person’s office as a member is vacated.
