Elections, AGM, Birmingham meeting

There will be elections for Chair and Committee later this year. After four years as Chair Jonathan Fine intends to stand down, as does our Treasurer, David Saunders.

The committee has not yet made arrangements for these elections, but closing dates for nominations will be no earlier than mid-September. So if you’d like to contribute to TeX in the UK as Chair or Committee member, please consider standing.

We’re thinking of holding the AGM as part of the FOSS (Free and Open Source Software) Unconference in Birmingham, which takes place on Saturday 16th October.

The venue is the classic Birmingham and Midland Institute, in the city centre, just a couple of minutes from the Art Gallery and Museum, which is running an exhibition on the spectacular Anglo-Saxon Staffordshire hoard of gold and silver jewellery.

So please do consider standing for the committee, and let us know how you feel about our plans for the AGM.
