"Surprising" yes, "bad" no.

As I explained in my previous posting, LA is serving the Australian
community by running a conference.  Given the conditions at the time, it
was decided that the best possible location conference for 2006 is
outside of Australia.  Although the selection process can be improved it
seems that LA made a good choice.

I don't see anything forbidding LA from operating outside Australia.  Do
you feel there should be such a prohibition?  Why?
