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.
