Hi everyone,

Firstly I'd like to thank Josh, Josh, Sae Ra, Tony, Craige, James and 
Chris for all their efforts on 2015 Council. The work the Council does 
is often hidden or under the radar, and I'd like to publicly acknowledge 
the time, energy and commitment that it takes to keep Linux Australia 
running so well.

Thank you to those who have nominated me for various positions on 
Council. During 2016, I won't have the bandwidth to take on the role of 
President, if elected, however am delighted to accept nominations for 
Vice President and for Ordinary Committee Member. If elected, my 
priorities would be to;

- lay the foundations for establishing a relevant and reasonable 
strategic blueprint for the organisation over the next 5 year horizon
- establish a Membership subcommittee and drive changes to the existing 
platform and its capabilities
- bring structure and maturity to onboarding, supporting and assisting 
volunteers to contribute to the organisation

I would intend to continue my roles on Media and Communications 
Subcommittee, wrapping up LCA2016 and leading GovHack Geelong.

My positions on various issues facing the organisation are outlined in 
'Inflection Point', and it's encouraging to see so much robust debate 
about its contents and what activities, objectives and projects Linux 
Australia should be focussing on to fulfil its remit.

This currently leaves Linux Australia without a nomination for 
President, and I strongly encourage anyone who may be considering 
nominating to do so.

Representing Australia's Linux, free and open source community is an 
immense privilege, a challenging opportunity and a truly rewarding 
professional development experience.

Kind regards,
Kathy Reid
