Action: CK

07/05-3 Amplify Her — MJL said we may be able to get funding to screen Amplify Her. Must not be in induction/welcome week/Int. Women's Day/at a time where we would
be competing with other events. CNJ suggested having a DJ at the event to make it a bit more of a social event: MJL said it would be best to have a female DJ (MS to find DJ). MJL said using a ticket service (e.g. Eventbrite) boosts attendance (CNJ to set this up). Wait until September to begin email departments about help or funding.

Action: CNJ, HH, MS

Action: Closed

New Matters
17/05-1 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, 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. MJL said it's common to have low attendance and there isn't much more we could be doing.

Action: Ongoing

17/05-2 Funding for Recording Competitions
Securing money for students who enter the AES recording competition. First place will cover transport, accommodation and entry to the competition.

Action: Ongoing

Date of Next Meeting
On or after Wednesday 6th June.
