This whole thread appears to me, to be about the relevance or the lack 
there of an organisation to its members.

We're talking about AUUG, SAGE-AU, ACS, etc, etc ... what is the 
relevance of any of these groups with out the members feet doing the voting?

All this talk about merging, name changing and charter wangling is 
enough to make one wonder; is Linux Australia relevant?

Has the goal to support Linux, Free Software and Open Source Software
changed that much in the life time of the organisation?

What is the five year and ten year goals for the organisation?

What does the organisation know about its members?
