After multiple nominations were received from the floor tt this meeting, it was resolved that Linux Australia would fill the vacant position by running an online by-election.


    The by-election has been set up in MemberDB and the nominations proposed and accepted at the AGM have been added in. The nominees have been asked to accept their nominations and add a spiel.
