I hate to be a wet blanket, however if this is the first notification of the 
AGM to members, the AGM will not be valid. 

From the AUUG constitution, section 15.1:


"Written notice of the time and place for each meeting and its agenda shall be 
mailed to each voting member of the AUUG at least four weeks before the date 
of the meeting."

Any outcomes or decisions from the AGM would be considered invalid if 
challenged, since appropriate notice has not been given to members (this 
happened to another organisation that I am involved with and the first AGM 
had to be declared null and void, and a second one held with appropriate 
notice being given - a very, very messy situation). Since there are likely to 
be decisions that impact on the continued running of AUUG, I think it would 
be important to get this right.

Then again, perhaps there was a notice sent out four weeks or more ago, which 
I haven't seen... For AUUG's sake, I hope this is the case!
