Unfortunately not - the secretary (me) is supposed to give notice 14
days before the AGM, which was Monday this week - which slipped past
without me noticing. My bad. :(
Currently ctte is discussing the best time to reschedule the AGM to.

That would be an excellent idea. However, atm the website doesn't, so
I trawled through the list archives and pulled out Bernard's excellent
spiel before the last AGM:

(apologies, Bernard, for the blatant cut-and-paste :)

A brief overview of roles, for those wanting to know what they might
be getting themselves into:
 * President: generally ensure the club runs and runs smoothly.
  Primary point of contact - liasing with venue sponsors, media,
  community, and anybody else who might be interested in us.
 * Vice President: also ensure the club runs smoothly.
 * Treasurer: takes responsibility for the club's finances - bank
  account, cash box, etc.
 * Secretary: responsible for clearing out PLUG's PO box (located in
South Perth).
 * Librarian: take possession of the PLUG library of CDs and books,
  and act as the point of contact for members wishing to borrow and
  return items.
 * Talks co-ordinators: arrange speakers and venues for PLUG's
  monthly seminars.
 * Webmasters: ensure the website is up to date and accurate
 * Listmasters: trawl through the mailing list queue for the plug
  list and the off-topic list.

HTH, and sorry for the late response,
