Nominate for Council

Linux Australia is governed by its 7-member Council, consisting of;

  • President
  • Vice-President
  • Secretary
  • Treasurer
  • Ordinary Committee Member (x 3)

Council members are elected at the Linux Australia Annual General Meeting (AGM), which is usually held at linux.conf.au, each January, for a 12-month term.

Council members are all volunteers.

Why should you nominate for Council?

Serving on Council is fantastic professional development experience and provides you with exposure to;

  • Governance and management (Linux Australia is governed by its constitution)
  • Budget setting and financial decision making (Linux Australia turns over nearly $AUD 1 million annually)
  • Risk analysis and mitigation (we hold significant insurances which are adjusted annually)
  • Communications and issues management (we do a lot of reactive and proactive communications)
  • Marketing and promotion (for the events we auspice)
  • Advocacy and representation (Linux Australia often has representation at workshops, think tanks and related engagement events)
