Mailing List Now Member Only

Monday, 2nd July, 2012 – 23:28 by Pete Smith

Hi.

After much careful consideration, the WAMUG Committee have decided that the Mailing List, as of 1 July 2012, will be a member only list. This was not a decision taken lightly but suffice to say that a full explanation was given on the mailing list prior to the change.

The ‘new’ procedures on how to join and subscribe are fully explained on the ‘Join’ and the ‘Mailing List’ pages.

At this stage, previous subscribers to the list who are not currently members have not actually been removed from the list. Their ability to post, however, has been blocked.

Only current financial members can actually post to the list.

The Special General Meeting of the WAMUG was held at 7.00 where the four special resolutions (amendments) to the constitution were put to the meeting. There were a number of proxy votes also received and, combined with the personal votes made at the actual meeting, each individual special resolution was carried unanimously.

The amended constitution will now be forwarded to the Department of Commerce to allow the changes to take effect.

There being no other business, the SGM was closed and then we all boxed on with the monthly meeting.

New Monthly Meetings Page

Tuesday, 25th January, 2011 – 18:10 by Pete Smith

G’day all.

The WAMUG website is finally undergoing some renovations. We’re learning as we go (and probably forgetting and having to re-learn too! – weeelll, me anyway!!!) so it will be bit-by-bit.

The ‘Meeting’ page is the first to be modified. It has the latest details of the next meeting and will be updated regularly.

Keep an eye out on the site and see if you can spot the changes. Some will be minor and others somewhat more involved. We’ll let you you know about some but not all!

Regards,

Pete Smith
