The ACUADS Executive telephone meeting held on 25 August considered the following agenda items:

Visual Art & Design Metrics – Research Quality Framework (RQF)
The Chair reported that the last committee meeting had been held on Tuesday 22 August in Canberra and noted that the Minister is due to release a report at the end of the month. The meeting agreed that ACUADS should therefore wait on both this report and the outcome of the Visual & Performing Arts Workshop being held 26 September, before responding.

Visual & Performing Arts Workshop, 26 September 2006
Professor Williams reported that the Workshop program is firming and that a program update will be forwarded next week. He advised that the Workshop registration fee was $99 plus Dinner. He asked if Executive members could assist in chairing sessions, which was readily agreed.

Annual Conference: Melbourne, 27-29 September 2006
The Chair advised that the program was almost complete and that another update will be on the web the following week.

The Chair asked if Executive members were available to chair the Parallel Sessions and they readily agreed.

Treasurer’s Report
The Treasurer advised that the accounts had been sent to the Auditor in preparation for the AGM.

The Australian Education Supplement
The Chair reported that there appeared to be enough positive acceptances for the Supplement to proceed with publication prior to the Conference.

The meeting noted that Monash University was doing the graphics for the supplement and that the conference theme would be echoed in the content and the supplement will include mention of the 25th anniversary of ACUADS.
