Along these lines, I'd like to nominate Michael for the position of Vice
President; from my vantage point, his work on l.c.a this year has been
incredible, and I figure if he's not so burnt out as to be fleeing the
country like some previous l.c.a head organisers have, that he'll do a
great job as VP.

My ulterior motive in this is that at the moment we've only got nominees
for the four extraordinary positions from three states (NSW, Vic, WA),
which means that either we can't even consider ordinary members from
those states, or that at least one of the remaining states (SA, Qld,
ACT) misses out on board representation entirely.

I'm not sure if Michael will accept the nomination, but given nominations
are closing today...
