Treasurer's report
Audit done and can be presented.
Joshua will update the treasurer's report so members can approve it at the SGM.

Constitutional amendments
John denies being on a grassy knoll in 1968.
Re affiliate members: affiliate membership is in the current approved constitution, introduced in approximately 2003. However Linux Australia has no actual affiliate members and never had affiliate members in the past to the best of our knowledge. Affiliate membership has never been in the model constitutions, so we are removing it as an unused custom change to the constitution.

Moving to Mediawiki
In progress.

Non-Paypal payment gateways
Joshua is chatting with some possible suppliers.

Nomination of an acting secretary
Peter will be travelling for the next few months, and will not be able to act as secretary for accepting proxies or for the SGM. Therefore Council has determined they will appoint an acting secretary until Peter returns from travel.
Motion: For Michael Carden to be acting secretary.
Moved: John Ferlito
Seconded: Peter Lieverdink
Carried unanimously.

Mary's resignation
Mary resigned on 8th July, effective 29th July.
