Hi there.  I'll just chime in and say that giving some loving DBA-like
attention to the membership database, and the setup of an online
'update your own details' form for members is a top personal priority
for me as incoming secretary.

A part of the problem to date has been with database infrastructure
and consistent update procedures.  When these are properly put in
place, expect a much smoother AUUG membership experience!


Secretary, AUUG.
