Agree: Better cost structure is necessary for any future for AUUG.

"Trading whilst insolvent" is specifically an offence under the
Corporations Act and probably doesn't apply.
AUUG comes under the VIC Associations Act - not sure if that rules applies.

I always thought, but never checked, that board members were
*personally* liable for Association debts...
Not sure if that liability extends to all members -

=> That legal opinion the Board got on their/AUUG's options, now would
be a good time to share it.
