I'm not sure whether responsibility is important. As a group of
interested/involved people, surely ILUG is as good a group of people as any
And it's organised enough, and has had press exposure before.
(Do the committee have to do what the members tell them? If so, can we have
a vote (offlist))...
If all groups in Ireland constrained themselves to just their small field of
responsibility, there'd be no corruption here <g>
(speaking of which, if we could get a tenner from everyone, we'd have a nice
big brown envelope with which to hit Etain Doyle)
