AGM + lightning talks

Notice of LUV Annual General Meeting, 2nd September 2014, 19:00.

Linux Users of Victoria, Inc., registration number
A0040056C, will be holding its Annual General Meeting at
7pm on Tuesday, 2nd September 2014, in the Buzzard
Lecture Theatre, Trinity College.

The AGM will be held in conjunction with our usual
September Main Meeting. As is customary, after the AGM
business we will have a series of lightning talks by
members on a recent Linux experience or project.

If you would like to give a talk, please pre-book your
spot by mailing


The only matters of business to be considered at this
meeting are:

1. Confirm minutes of annual general meeting on 3rd
September 2013 and of additional general meeting on
3rd June 2014.

2. Receive and consider annual report of the committee.

3. Receive and consider financial statements.

4. Elect committee: office-bearers (President,
Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer) and ordinary
committee members.


Nominations for committee positions will be accepted at
the meeting. You can nominate yourself, or another
member if that other member agrees to the nomination.
If you wish to nominate yourself or another member, and
can't be at the AGM, you should nominate a proxy to do
the nominating on your behalf.


You may appoint another member of LUV as your proxy for
this meeting, to speak and vote on your behalf if you
are unable to attend.

If you are submitting your proxy on paper, you should
sign and date it. If you are emailing your proxy, then
the date and act of emailing will be taken as the
equivalent of signing and dating a paper proxy.

You can use the following form, which you can copy from
between the lines of underscores, inserting your own
name and that of your proxy as appropriate:


I, [insert your name], being a member of Linux Users of
Victoria, appoint [insert name of your proxy], being
also a member of Linux Users of Victoria, as my proxy to
vote on my behalf at the Annual General Meeting of the
association to be held on 2nd September 2014, and at any
adjournment of that meeting.

[You can add here any specific instructions to your
proxy, such as directions to vote in a particular way on
a particular item. If you have no specific
instructions, you can delete this bracketed paragraph.]


Notes about proxies:

1. You can appoint any LUV member as your proxy.
However, the committee suggests that it's practical
and convenient to appoint the President, Lev
Lafayette, as your proxy, who can be trusted to act
on your proxy faithfully.

2. Emailed proxies should be sent to, and must be received at
least 24 hours before the meeting.

3. Members who wish to send a paper proxy by post should
contact the Secretary for the postal address to use.
Such proxies also must be received at least 24 hours
before the meeting.

4. Paper proxies can also be presented at the
commencement of the meeting itself.

5. We recommend using the above form. However, under
the new model rules, you can instead use any form
that clearly identifies your proxy and is signed by

Questions about this meeting are best posted to

-- Les Kitchen, as LUV Secretary.
