Linux Australia is governed by its 7-member Council, consisting of;
- 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)
We now have available a set of position descriptions so you can get a strong feel for the commitment required of Council members.
As always, the present Council is always happy to have a chat if you are considering nominating and want to talk it over – just make contact.
