Hi all,

So Linux Australia elections are rolling around again. For the last
couple of years the AGM has been held in a public forum at the
linux.conf.au conference. At the last AGM some changes to the
constitution were approved by the Linux Australia community, enabling us
to run the AGM and elections online. This means equal opportunity to
people wanting to nominate, and put their case online, as well as
strictly keeping to the 12 months requirement between AGMs, regardless
of when LCA itself runs. 

This isn't the official AGM notice, that will go out to the members by
the normal procedure from the secretary with at least the 14 days
required notice. The LA committee have set out the dates and a rough
	Dec 8th - Nominations open for the seven positions 
	Jan 6th - All committee reports are posted online, IRC channel opened
for 48 hours, questions answered by committee, logged and put up with
the reports.
	Jan 7th - Nominations close at midnight.
	Jan 8th - Voting period starts - completely online, you will need your
membership email address and password. If you are not a member yet, then
you can join at http://linux.org.au/membership/ and you can get your
password and such there if you have forgotten it.
	Jan 15th - Voting period stops
	Jan 16th - Results announced on mailing lists, and any discussions
taken to linux-aus mailing list.

Linux Australia will still be giving a presentation at linux.conf.au as
to the status of Linux Australia and any news coming up at the time.

Considering this is the first time we've run this online, the process is
open to feedback and suggestions :)

Pia Smith
President of Linux Australia
