The AGM of the Owner's Association of the BPBR Malacca..
We were in Malacca for the weekend. This time was to attend the AGM of the Owners Association of the Bidara Puteri Beach Resort [BPBR] formerly the Mutiara Malacca Beach Resort] of which I was the Deputy Chairperson of the Committee. The meeting on Sunday April 25, 2010 at 2:00PM went out very well and as usual the old committee was reelected, with Col.Yap as the Chairperson and I as the Deputy.
This time we invited the Representative of Commissioner of Building [COB] to attend and brief the members of the function of this new Government agency that was established recently by an Act of Parliament. Mr.Mohan, the representative of the COB gave us a wealth of information on the role of the COB as well as that of the Joint Management Committee. On the advise of the COB we elected a Joint Management Committee to manage the Condo complex. Under the new Act all Condominium or Apartment complex had to form the Joint Management Committee by law. Once this Committee is registered with the COB it would became a legal entity to manage the complex professionally and with legal backing under the act.
The Joint Management Committee would work hand in hand with the Association to manage the complex. In the past the Owners Association as an NGO does not have the legal backing to manage it professional. With the Joint Management Committee [JMC] which has legal status under the COB, the JMC would be able to provide better management to the complex. Thus would be able to provide better benefits to all the owners.
