2009 Linux Australia Council Election Open

The Linux Australia Council Election 2009 is now open and members can nominate for all positions.

The positions are;

President (1)
Responsible for ensuring the smooth running of LA according to the LA vision. The President often has to speak on behalf of LA to the press, other organisations, and the community. The President effectively needs to keep the committee and other individuals enthused and active in their work for LA and the wider community.

Vice President (1)
The Vice President supports the President in all Presidential responsibilities, as well as taking over in these duties when the President is unable.

Secretary (1)
The Secretary must ensure all member details are kept up to date and accessible. The Secretary also takes the minutes and ensures that the minutes are accessible. The Secretary is responsible for any necessary correspondence between the members and committee.

Treasurer (1)
The Treasurer's job is to maintain smooth running of the organisation from an accounting point of view. All monies are to be collected and payments authorised. Correct books need to be kept showing the financial affairs of the organisation. The treasurer typically also has to work closely with the LCA (http://linux.conf.au) team to ensure that LCA is properly funded by LA.
