Quorum for adjourned meeting

We had no quorum for the BC AGM so it was adjourned to the same time same place next week. Based on the STSM Act we then proceeded with the meeting with the people present as the Act states that they then form a quorum. One of the owners got the meeting invalidated – why was that possible?

The STSM Act states the following for adjourned meetings:

  1. PMR 19

    (4)           If within 30 minutes from the time appointed for a general meeting a quorum is not present, the meeting stands adjourned to the same day in the next week at the same place and time; provided that if on the day to which the meeting is adjourned a quorum as described in sub-rule (2) is not present within 30 minutes from the time appointed for the meeting, the members entitled to vote and present in person or by proxy constitute a quorum.


    The reason why our meeting was invalidated was because we did not wait the required 30 minutes at the adjourned meeting.  After 30 minutes it will be a case of whoever is present forms a quorum (must be at least two people in person)

Nowhere on this list of records to be kept by the Body Corporate does it mention recordings of meetings so the Trustees can argue that the recording does not have to be shared with owners.
