Welcome to a brand new year Free Software friends,
Along with a new year we also thought it's a good time for us to refresh the committee and get back into the habit of having an Annual General Meeting.
Currently we have three people standing for committee positions but traditionally we have had four committee members. So we would love to hear from anyone in the community interested in stepping forward and joining the committee. Committee members are expected to attend an additional committee meeting once a month, but beyond that you can contribute at your own pace and we will be renewing the committee annually during our January meeting so it's only a one year commitment.
During the meeting we'll go over the job description for a committee member in a bit more detail. Then we will nominate the running committee members and hear a few words from each of the running members. We will then officially dissolve the existing committee and vote in the new committee.
We will then have our first AGM in a while and discuss some of the current issues we face as Free Software Melbourne. Of particular note we are considering amalgamating all of the (mostly dormant) groups around Australia under the Free Software Australia banner.
This will be a non technical event and all are welcome. Come along and have your say on Free Software Melbourne in 2022
