I'm very excited to be the proud new President of the Melbourne PHP User Group! We had a meeting tonight to vote on incorporation of the organisation, and 6 positions were filled. Congratulations to the others:
- President: Ben Balbo
- Vice-president: Ted Bown
- Secretary: Robin MacPherson
- Treasurer: Dean Tedesco
- Ordinary Committee Members: Serg Belokamen and Neale Yates
The next year will hopefully be an interesting one. The group is now 2 years old, and started as a bunch of people who met up at a cafe once a month. I first went to one of these meetings in March 2003, and the next month we had our first organised meeting.
We've had regular talks on a range of topics and at different levels, and I hope we can continue with this into the future.
With only two of the six committee members having been in the previous committee, I hope this new blood will help the group flourish and go in directions we hadn't yet dreamed of!
