Hi everyone, This is an updated announcement for our next SLUG meeting, on 28 March. This is a special one as it includes our Annual General Meeting. We have also confirmed our In-Depth Talk. For a full announcement, see http://www.slug.org.au/node/94 The AGM includes elections for the 2008-2009 Committee. We need candidates! All but two of our current committee are retiring, so that leaves five vacancies that we need to fill. For a user-friendly guide to the AGM, including how to get involved in the elections, see http://lists.slug.org.au/archives/announce/2008/03/msg00003.html For a better idea of what being a Committee member entails, see http://www.slug.org.au/participation If you have any questions, please ask on the lists.
