I agree whole-heartedly with your desire to keep somethings of AUUG's
history, etc, alive, the first steps of this is getting some form of
action from the current board or a replacement board.

And fairly obviously as a Life Member, I'm stuck without an explicit
resignation on my part (which I'd prefer not to do).

Okay, what do you believe an "informal association" would be able to do?
Certainly the items you mentioned are more likely to be signed over to
individuals who have an interest in keeping these things working. But
I'm wondering about the structure of such an association in a more
formal sense. If it does have some formal structure, then it may be
better to keep AUUG Inc. going.

If the board doesn't take any action, what mechanisms is there left to
handle any transfer? I think it basically come up for grabs after AUUG
