G'day all, The AGM came and went yesterday in pretty much record time! I must thank Liam for opening up his place for a very-mini-Sydney meetup, and it was, as ever, great to hear all the voices from around the country on the conference call - personally I find that bit quite inspiring, so it's always a bit of a shame that the actual nuts and bolts business of the AGM is relatively straightforward - I think we managed to complete business in about quarter of an hour this year!
Congrat.s are also due to all elected folk (details at http://wikimedia.org.au/wiki/Committee ) - and following the business end of the meeting, in Sydney we discussed things like getting organised for a 'Wikipedia Day' in January (it's the site's 9th birthday you know - heading rapidly for double figures!), as well as trying to expand membership, and have regular (monthly?) events / meetups to try and keep membership engaged, informed, and excited! I believe the committee are getting organised to meet in person in the new year, and no doubt we'll hear more good stuff anon... but for now, just a sincere 'well done' to the folk involved in organising the AGM, and a note that here in Sydney, we're shooting for one more mini-meetup before christmas, it would be great to get as many folk along as possible, and on a related note, I've just created http://wikimedia.org.au/wiki/Meetups to see if a centralised meetup area on the 'official' wiki might help - please do add info. from other states as appropriate :-) cheers, Peter, PM.
