I've only just come across a mention of this group.
Google shows their website and that they are known to AUUG. [and no other 
groups outside WA]  $100/yr membership.

It's a real shame that they didnt see AUUG as a viable voice for them.
Is this a specific enough niche to be a SIG of AUUG [not in WA, but 

What do others think??
Setting up viable, active and vibrant groups is no easy matter... BUT, how do 
we answer "where do you 'up' from a Linux Users Group"?



"The society held its inaugural meeting on 30 June 2002 after much discussion 
on the Perth Linux Users Group [PLUG]  mailing list about the lack of a 
professional body for open source software, mainly Linux, in Western 
Australia. The Society of Linux Professionals (Western Australia) was 
incorporated on 12 July 2002.
