Presidents Report

Continued to make use of for wlug. Cost of this service is US$12 per 6 months. Most popular presentations this year were by Baden Delamore on system security. As yet we have not re-applied to function as an incorporated society. Plan to do so in 2016. Wlug server was compromised. Software has been re-installed, but not yet placed back online. The wikipedia pages,, are being run from systems of Daniel Lawson. Suggestion of more marketing of wlug around the University for 2016. One meeting this year could not be held at Waikato university as the room was booked for exam use. That meeting was held at The Cook.

Peter moved, and Rod seconded the Presidents Report.

Treasurers Report

Tony presented the report for 2015. Wlug ended the year with a small surplus. Tony has recently paid some expenses and needs to coordinate with Rene and Chris on receiving reimbursement. The payment method to Orcon for the domain name has changed from quarterly to once every 3 years. Tony will produce a 2015 financial statement such that it can be submitted if we proceed with reapplying to operate as an incorporated society.

Tony moved the report be accepted, and Roderick seconded.
