Hugh Blemings president at linux.org.au

Dear Colleagues,

As you may be aware, the election for Committee members and Office 
Bearers for Linux Australia is currently in the voting stage [0].

Ballots can be placed by members up until polls close at midnight on 
Sunday January 15 - the evening before the AGM and commencement of 
linux.conf.au in Hobart.

If you have not already done so, I urge you to vote - at the time of 
writing we have less than 100 members having done so - well under 10% of 
our Membership.

While this does not present a Constitutional issue the poll this year is 
perhaps a little more significant than normal as there are two office 
Bearer roles that are "contested" (amicably I hasten to add!)

Both the roles of Treasurer and President have two candidates to choose 
from - I encourage you to review the statements made by the nominees to 
understand their positions/platforms.

In particular the two candidates for President are (intentionally and 
collaboratively) putting forward different visions for the future of 
Linux Australia - a plebiscite of sorts.

We also have an enviable group of candidates to choose from for Ordinary 
Committee Member - again worthy of your consideration.

Please take the time to vote while the polls are open, particularly if a 
password reset might be needed - avoid the last minute rush :)

Thank you for your consideration and your support of your organisation.

Kind Regards,

President, Linux Australia
