    Responsible for ensuring the smooth running of LA according to the
    LA vision. The President often has to speak on behalf of LA to the

    effectively needs to keep the committee and other individuals
    enthused and active in their work for LA and the wider community.

Vice President (1)

    responsibilities, as well as taking over in these duties when the

    The Secretary must ensure all member details are kept up to date and
    accessible. The Secretary also takes the minutes and ensures that
    the minutes are accessible. The Secretary is responsible for any
    necessary correspondence between the members and committee.

Treasurer (1)
    The Treasurer's job is to maintain smooth running of the
    organisation from an accounting point of view. All monies are to be
    collected and payments authorised. Correct books need to be kept
    showing the financial affairs of the organisation. The treasurer
    typically also has to work closely with the LCA
    (http://linux.conf.au) team to ensure that LCA is properly funded by
