   For some time, the feedback AUUG has been getting from members has been
   that they feel we are not doing enough in the System Administration
   space and that they would welcome AUUG doing something here. Consequently,
   AUUG has decided to have a Systems Administration Symposium, along the
   lines of the other symposia we've run in the past and continue to run.


                 AUUG Systems Administration Symposium 2003
