alu-meeting (at) alu (dot) org, or arrange for written notice to be
handed to the chair of the meeting before it starts.

The ALU's full by-laws will be found at:


Election of Directors

The ALU has eight directors. All eight directorships are up for
election at this meeting. Existing directors may stand again.

The directors appoint the ALU's officers, such as President, Secretary
and Treasurer. These officers might be (but don't have to be) chosen
from among the directors; currently there are three officers who are
not directors. The ALU board consists of the directors plus the
officers. The board meets monthly by conference call and is
responsible for running the ALU between one annual meeting and the

Any member of the ALU, and any person attending ILC 2007, may stand as
a director. If you feel that you could contribute to the ALU, we
explicitly invite you to stand for election.

If you would like to stand as a director of the ALU then you may - if
you wish - write a few sentences about such matters as: yourself, your
involvement in the lisp community, and the direction you'd like the
ALU to take over the next year or so. Mail this to alu-meeting (at)
alu (dot) org no later than Monday 2007-03-26, and it will be
distributed to members and delegates before the conference starts.
Nominations for directors will be taken at the meeting itself and it
is not necessary for potential directors to have written something
about themselves in advance.

(on behalf of the board)
