Are you joking? You want to actually compete with LCA/SAGE-AU/OSDC ?
They are growing, AUUG has been shrinking for years.
And why would people go to *all* these conferences?
They'll see mostly the same people anyway, either speaking or attending.

AUUG would need to come up with a very compelling proposition to
warrant spending time on it.
Going head-on against all the other conferences, doing exactly what
they are doing, that is not compelling IMHO.
Sorry. If the conf has merit, surely it has some special niche. What
