[Linux-aus] So long, and thanks for all the fish | a final Linux Australia update from Kathy

Hi everyone,

Firstly a huge welcome to those who are at linux.conf.au 2019 in 
Christchurch this week - some have had troublesome journeys and 
arrivals, but you're safe here now ;-) Steven, Lisa and their incredible 
team of volunteers have done an outstanding job, the venue and surrounds 
are amazing and we're sure you'll have an intense and memorable week.

After tonight's AGM I'll be bowing out of Linux Australia duties for the 
foreseeable future, and wanted to pen one last update.

        Linux Australia AGM | Council Election | Constitutional Changes

Tonight at 5.30pm NZDT (3.30pm AEDT) the Linux Australia AGM will be 
held. A Zoom conference is available for those attending remotely at:

The AGM has been posted previously to this list, and a reminder was sent 
this morning.

The Annual Report is available at: 

Voting has now closed on both the Council Election and Constitutional 
Changes and the results will be scrutinised by our Returning Officer, 
Stewart Smith and will be announced at the AGM.

One Council position of OCM remains vacant after the nominations closed; 
this vacancy will be opened at the AGM and nominations called for from 
the floor. If more than one nomination is received a vote will then be 
held to elect the vacant OCM role.

        VALA Tech Camp diversity scholarship

Linux Australia has again partnered with VALA to offer a diversity 
scholarship for regional, rural and Indigenous GLAM - galleries, 
libraries, archives and museums practitioners - to attend VALA Tech Camp 
in Melbourne in April. We see this as a small gesture to help improve 
diversity and inclusion. If you have relevant regional, rural and 
Indigenous networks, please do share this out to them.


        So long, and thanks for all the fush ;-)

Over the last two years it's been a privilege to help advance Linux 
Australia, building on the work of previous Councils and Presidents. The 
details of our achievements are covered in the Annual Report, however 
I'd like to give a special mention to outgoing Council Members Cameron, 
Cherie, Hugh and James for all their efforts during the year, and a 
special thank you to Sae Ra and Russell for their continued service in 

May your dashboards be green and your packets be fast.

Best, Kathy
