Previous Matters Arising:
07/05-1 Social Media Committee Member — we discussed the possible need for a committee member to deal solely with social media content for the AESYSS.

07/05-3 Amplify Her — MS is to email Dr Mariana Lopez to arrange a meeting with the committee regarding the Amplify Her event in Sep/Oct 2018.
07/05-1 Lack of interest in our events - All expressed concern for the lack of interest in attendance following the poorly attended Darryn de la Soul event. HH suggested creating a survey for AES student members asking them what kind of things they would like to see from us. Discussed setting up an Eventbrite account for tickets, setting up a 'speed dating' for people who need crew (and prospective crew members) and creating a Facebook group (not page) for members.
07/05-2 Committee satisfaction - CK expressed his pride in the committee for branching out by advertising being able to help other people find crew members for their external projects. CNJ, MS and HH agreed!
07/05-3 Connecting with other UoY departments
HH suggested emailing Professor Ambrose Field (Music) and Jez Welles about current AESYSS goals and connections.
07/05-4 Event: Equipment Demos and Department Tours

Rehearsal Room, Euphonix, Foley, ADR, Electronics Studios, Anechoic Chamber, etc. MS suggested using Eventbrite to create a small number of tickets to prompt people to sign-up so they don't miss their chance to join. CK suggested writing up a programme of the day.
