At the Annual General Meeting, the President and Treasurer will present
their reports for 2002, and the 2003 SLUG Committee will be elected.

SLUG membership:

    People wanting to vote in the elections, and people standing for a
    committee position, *must* become financial members of SLUG for the
    coming year.

    All existing SLUG memberships expire before the AGM.

    A full year of SLUG membership costs $25. This can be paid at any
    time from now until the AGM to the SLUG Treasurer, Jamie Wilkinson.
    (You can pay after the AGM too, for that matter, to the new
    treasurer, but you obviously will have missed voting.)

Elections:

    All SLUG committee positions will become vacant before the AGM and a
    new committee will be elected.

    Nominations are now open and will close just before the election
    itself. Nominations should be sent to the slug@xxxxxxxxxxx list.
    Nominations need to be seconded, which should also happen on
    slug@xxxxxxxxxxx.  You should check with the nominee first to make
    sure they actually want to stand for election.

    Positions:
     - President: responsible for chairing committee meetings. Informal
       responsibilities include steering SLUG, and representing SLUG to
       the public and media.

     - Vice-president: The president's right-hand, left-hand, and other
       limbs as appropriate.

     - Secretary: Takes minutes at committee meetings, handles
       correspondence.

     - Treasurer: handles SLUG finances. The SLUG treasurer will need to
       be organised and capable of keeping correct records of income and
       expenditure.

     - Ordinary committee members: There are three ordinary committee
       members.
       
    The committee as a whole generally organises the monthly meetings
    and most other SLUG events.

    All committee members are expected to attend the monthly committee
    meetings. Committee meetings are usually held in an evening during
    the first week after the SLUG monthly meeting.
    
    Reminder: to run for committee, you must pay for a 2003 membership.
    You can do this at the AGM or before.

2002 committee:

   The 2002 committee, whose glorious reign ends at the AGM, is:

    - President: Jeff Waugh

    - Vice president: Craige McWhirter

    - Secretary: Peter Hardy

    - Treasurer: Jamie Wilkinson

    - Ordinary members: Tony Green, Jan Schmidt, Mary Gardiner

Proxies:

   If you cannot attend the March meeting, you can appoint a proxy to
   vote on your behalf (the proxy can also vote on their own behalf).
   Email committee@xxxxxxxxxxx and tell them the name of the person who
   holds your proxy vote. Make sure you've paid for your 2003 membership
   if you do this!
   
   If you don't know anyone who can proxy for you, email
   committee@xxxxxxxxxxx with the names of the nominees you wish to vote
   for, and a 2002 committee member will be your proxy.

-Mary
