2019 Executive Meeting Minutes
Tuesday 13 August 2019, 4:30 to 5:34 pm
Held at EDC, Hindmarsh
Present: Grant, Steve, Tim, Alex, Harry, Hal
Apologies: Laura, Guy, Karen
- Meeting opened 4:30 pm.
- Acceptance of the minutes
of the last meeting (30 July 2019).
Tabled: Grant, Seconded: Alex, CARRIED.
Modifications: insert names and dollar amount into point 3, regarding the
sponsorship proposal for AIYFF, ACCEPTED.
- Correspondence: Recommendation from Jayne and Harry to
postpone conference, and resignation from Jayne. Grant to write
a reply thanking Jayne for her contributions, and state that the
sponsorship to fund a prize for the AIYFF is still on offer.
- Jayne & Harry went to UniSA, hire costs was looking
rather expensive. Later, UniSA replied sending an
application form, and saying would waive fees if the conference
was supported by their School of Creative Industries. But
this would exclude inclusion of some competitors (such as
Flinders, CDW) in the conference.
- Is there a need for the conference? Recommend more time
to build up a groundswell, and fund-raising, considered a better
option. Alex moved to delay to around 27th
March, 2020 (a Friday & Saturday still considered best choice
of days). Harry seconded. Motion carried.
- Other venues considered: The UniSA cafeteria looked
good as a venue, in itself. Adelaide High School, Star
Theatres (fairly cheap, technician fee not a high cost).
Here at the EDC (quite a few advantages).
- Funding: February/March 2020 the period for applying
for funds. Can Educators SA help with finding
sponsorship? Would be good for SAAME for the head of
CEASA (Rod Nancarrow) to be
at the next exec meeting, to say what support they could give us
with holding a conference.
- Promotion: Educators SA has a calendar coming out at
beginning of year (could support us by printing advert for
conference in it). Sophie from The Hunting was keen on
helping gee-up the conference. Can the old school courier
service be used to distribute promotional info? (Apparently
it's still an important service in the country.)
- Build groundswell: Use extra time to find out more what
people would want us to provide.
- Hold some Professional Development before AGM. Hold
SAAME workshops on the 25 & 26
October 2019 dates we were planning to hold the Media Matters conference on (Alex?).
Grant to run workshop with GMIL literacy/numeracy.
- Agenda for next meeting:
- Investigate what we should be providing to members,
mission statement, strategic planning, rebranding,
examine/update constitution, concentrate on promoting media
education, promoting the use of the media (involvement with
Ch44, ThreeD Radio, etc), encouraging student teachers, and
younger people to join. Get more people from outside of
teaching (industry, etc) involved with SAAME (Hal).
- Planning for the Media Matters conference in March
- Media Moves on PBA-FM this Wednesday (14th) at
- Dates: GMIL in first week of October.
