Why Accreditation?

Accreditation enables strata managers to gain professional recognition, and thereby a competitive advantage, which can enhance their business, and help build a long term career. Consequently, accreditation works to raise strata industry standards overall.

Specifically it helps ensure strata managers:


  • are aware of relevant and current legislation

  • follow the specific requirements of legislation

  • adhere to best practice

  • adopt current procedures

  • commit to clerical excellence and

  • continually enhance their managerial and meeting chairmanship skills.

Accreditation provides a way to identify strata managers who have submitted themselves to a code of ethics and undertake continuing professional development, so creating security, trust, professionalism and recognition.
