Educators SA: Harry introduced Rod Nancarrow, who gave us
a brief talk about Educators SA, and how it can
help us. There was a bit of Q & A, and info about
Educators SA services.
Low fees (the amount is cost recovery), printing,
membership management (NB: our current system isn't the only way we
can do it at the moment, it's just carrying on with the previous
system), digital members cards (Harry).
Strategic planning (Alex?). Wanting to increase our
membership. Work out who you want to target first, do it in
stages. Best to use different approaches for different
targets. e.g. Need to hook the younger generation (~24
yo) within 8 seconds.
Governance structures (e.g. dealing with factions).
Event management (Hal). Flyers. Systems to select
sessions that you want to attend for events. Attendence
Member benefits (Educators SA benefits that we can offer to our

- Arts Inspire: Report from Harry. Arts Inspire held
this year with a focus on gifted & education. To be
biennial (next one in 2021), similar to this year's. Promoting
school leaders. Looking at the need (preaching to the converted
& the non-converted). Practical workshops for
teachers. Should target government & councils too.
Harry has minutes if wanted (can be put on our website). The
next one is year and a half away. Next planning meeting
probably early next year.
- GMIL: Report from Grant. The recent GMIL workshop had
a big advertisement reach, but a small attendance.
- Artwork/logo: Concentrate on an artistic design of the
SAAME name, instead of symbolic imagery. Get some costing.
- Hal: Do we take up the membership management system that
Rod told us about? Do we organise a meeting to go into it in
- AGM planning: Where to hold it, what to use as a
drawcard? Film, TV, radio, games, Uni, print? Mil Films
- Creative Arts Teacher assocation (Harry). Creative arts is
separate from media (studies). Process driven (based on
the process, rather than the end-product).
- Funding (Steve): Educators SA grant applications (of up to
$6000) need to be in by January 28th. Steve needed to know what
we wanted to apply for funding for. Webinars and Vimeo channels
were put forward. Action: Hal to email Grant info, plus
costing, regarding webinars.
