The Constitution outlines the purpose and operating “rules” for the BCCG and its members.

​This is the Constitution approved at the 2016 AGM.

The aims of the BCCG are to:

  • provide education, training and resources for body corporate chairpersons to enhance their management of their respective body corporate
  • share information amongst body corporate chairpersons
  • seek information from other bodies for the benefit of bodies corporate
  • provide a communication and networking channel for body corporate chairpersons
  • initiate or respond to central and local government on issues of concern to bodies corporate
  • use the purchasing power of the group for body corporate benefit.


The Body Corporate Chairs’ Group Incorporated (BCCG) was established in Wellington in early 2012 by two Body Corporate chairpersons: Neil Cooper, BC chair of the Dominion Building and Wendy Booth, BC chair of Tasman Gardens. The driver for this was the difficulties many BC chairs had with the introduction of the Unit Titles Act 2010 and the associated Unit Titles Regulations 2011.  Both the Act and the Regulations introduced a large number of changes to the way that BCs were to be governed. In particular, the Act introduced a number of new and very specific responsibilities for every BC chairperson. Neil and Wendy believed that if BC chairs were able to share their knowledge, contacts and ideas, then chairs generally would be better able to work with the new Act. The first meeting was held in April 2012 – and the word spread quickly. The initial AGM was held in June 2012 and almost 60 BC chairs attended. By the end of 2014 the BCCG database listed approximately 230 BC chairs and 10 associate members (largely BC management companies) and in late 2014 an Auckland branch opened. At this stage the group represented BCs in Paihia, Auckland, Mt Maunganui, Napier, Taupo, Wellington, Christchurch, Tekapo and Queenstown.
