  6. AOB
    1. ACARA:  Grant had a meeting with ACARA (Australian Curriculum Arts), they're rewriting the Arts Curriculum.  Not looking at any major changes, but reducing it and making it more teacher-friendly (removing teaching binary, adding relationships, is missing analysis–has “making” without “why we are making”).  Looking at digital technologies in March/April.  Seeking feedback by end of July.
    2. Wikipedia:  SAAME isn't mentioned in Wikipedia.  Grant is looking at starting an entry, beginning by copying some of the data from our website.
    3. Website:  Still need to update details on our website regarding membership (benefits, costs, paying, etc).  Update executive biographies.
  7. Meeting closed at 7:44 pm.
