Wondering what the decisions were relating to several of the items 
raised under general business at the AGM.

> General Business
> The president thanks Ms Elspeth Thorne for her work on the council over the past year.
> Mikal Stil asks whether the other LA event subcommittees have video that can be mirrored and whether LA has plans to replace ageing hardware.
What was the outcome of this suggestion?
> Pia Waugh suggests subcommittees provide reports of their activities.
Will reports be provided to the next AGM by subcommittees?
> Julian Goodwin suggests LA process and infrastructure is provided to subcommittees to lighten workload and wheel reinvention.Joshua Hesketh points out there is a new policy for subcommittees and teams.

> James Iseppi notes that the equipment purchased specifcally for LCA2011 will be shared with future subcommittees.
> There is a question from the floor about the tight time frame between the end of the financial year and the AGM and providing sensible financial reporting to the membership.
> Jamez Polley suggests it might be a legal requirement to approve audited financials at the AGM.
What was the outcome of this?
> Alistair ?? runs a LUG and asks whether there are plans for the council to coordinate eg a national SFD effort.
Are there plans for the council to coordinate a SFD effort?
> Mikal Stil asks whether LA should invest in some form of asset tracking. Julien Goodwin adds that a wiki page will probably suffice.
> James Iseppi has been volunteers to inventory equipment post-LCA2011.

> There is a question from the floor about IPv6 connectivity for LA services.
> James Iseppi wonders whether LA should make use of cloud and related infrastructure rather than owning physical hardware.
What was the outcome of this suggestion?

Hope these items can be cleared up for those who weren't able to attend 
the AGM.

Thanks, Kylie :-)
