Carried unanimously.


6. IT-SIG’s Programme for 2012 There was lots of interest (Brian Flaherty, Helen Brownlie, Peter Kennedy, Paul Hayton) in running an Unconference/Bar Camp for half a day before or after the Palmerston North Conference. It would be best if this was run at the same time as other SIG activities and should be in addition to a lunchtime workshop. John Laurie to get details from LIANZA for discussion at next Committee meeting.


More webinar series were supported and committee members will canvass their organizations for presenters. Continuing problems with getting access to KAREN noted by Paul Hayton. John Laurie to investigate Skype and Google Plus as alternatives. Suggestion that VALA attendees (Helen Brownlie, Sam Minchin) could report back to IT-SIG members via a webinar.


The meeting concluded at 10.30.


Next Committee Meeting: Thursday 1st March at 10am.

IT-SIG Convenor
