Sub-Committees

Linux Australia has a few sub-committees that consist of enthusiastic individuals from the community who share a common passion.

Check out what the various committees below are up to, and even get involved if one tickles your fancy :) Or start your own after reading through the sub-committee policy.

If a group wants to start a subcommittee, they can write to the LA council with the proposed subcommittee name, members of the team, purpose, expected duration, any funding requirements and methods of engaging with the broader community.

The committees are expected to read and agree to the sub-committee policy.

Sub-committees are considered to be official part of the LA structure and can as such speak on behalf of LA in the context of their particular project.

The subcommittee's job is to facilitate LCA, other LA events, and LUGS to do top-notch recording and streaming. This is done by providing both in-person and online consulting to the conference teams; including things such as recommendations of vendors; advice on setup, and volunteer training.

The team also manages an inventory of devices and parts purchased to facilitate this job plus administration of any servers. Finally, the subcommittee helps lead the development of software and hardware tools which fit the goals and make life easier.

This subcommittee is open for anybody to join.
