LoCo Council Grants AZ Team "Approved Status"

On June 4th, 2008, the Ubuntu LoCo Council met to consider our application, shown above, to become an "Approved Team". In addition to the many team members in attendance, there were also members of other Ubuntu affiliates there to cheer us on. In the end, the council voted unanimously to approve our application. The log of the meeting is posted below your review.

I want to personally thank every team member for their hard work and dedication. This could not have been possible you! JohnCrawford
