People have lives outside of the group - most have day jobs or other
Personally, I'd sooner see a handful of people stand for election who
have the time and are prepared to put the effort into ILUG than a large
number who simply won't or can't.

ILUG is a user's group. It's there for users of linux. What should it be
doing? Standing on Grafton Street dressed as penguins?
The committee is not ILUG, the member, feel free to organise what you
wish, and by all means attempt to seek help from the members. The
"committee" are members too y'know.
