Hi All

Just a reminder about this.  The election is coming up pretty quickly  
and we really need to secure as many proxy votes for James as we can.   
If you have not already provided James with your proxy paperwork (and  
want to vote for James naturally) it'd be great if you could finalise  
this in the next few days.  If you need a hand with the paperwork  
please let me or James know.

This is a great chance to get Australian representation on the APNIC  
EC.  The only thing more Australian than voting for James would have  
been firing up a Lamb BBQ yesterday :-)
