SAAME member biographies
Page setup notice: All execs who'd like to have a bio on this page, please email Tim a brief bio to include, and a photo (if desired). NB: All information on here will be fully viewable by the general public, so only include information that you'd like to be seen. You can include personal contact information (if you're prepared to handle spam). I'll do something similar for the conference page/site (bios for the conference organisers). Those who don't want a bio, let me know, then I'll know not to keep reminding people to give me one. Perhaps non-executive members could be included, too (e.g. people who help out in meetings, workshops, etc).
