The roles of the Events Officer and the Student Support Officer will be allocated to students in your group.

In this part of the assessment task, you are required to prepare, conduct and act as Chairperson of a formal meeting.
You will demonstrate that you have successfully chaired the meeting by completing all the templates provided in this assessment task.
Before chairing the meeting, you are required to nominate a fellow student from the class as a minute taker, brief him/her on their role, and tell them how they are to take the minutes.
You must specify the minute taker’s name and the role in your meeting documentations. You must also provide rough notes for the person along with the assessment.
Scenario:
You are the head of the student council at a small school which teaches English. There are 3 elected committee members of the student council. The members include the Events Officer, the Student Support Officer and the President (you). You will be chairing a meeting with the Director of the school to discuss the upcoming annual New Year’s party.
You will need to come up with a plan for the New Year’s party and convince the Director of the need for a bigger budget than the previous year. This is because the previous year the event was a horrible experience for all involved, with a lack of food and activities, resulting in many people leaving before the New Year began.
The meeting is due to be held in 2 weeks on the 1st of October. Meeting invitations need to be created and sent out via email to the relevant committee members, including the Director who needs to be present at the meeting.
The Director will be arriving on an early flight from Sydney at 8:30am on the meeting day and will leave to catch a flight home on the same day at 6pm. Transport will have to be arranged to pick him up and drop him off. The meeting will be held in the school’s Conference Room 1.
The meeting will need allocated roles and responsibilities for each of the team members and work out how to best coordinate the efforts with the student body. This meeting will also need to establish the theme, location, date, time, budget, and how to improve on the previous New Year’s celebration.
You will prepare a short PowerPoint on how to hold an effective party and what activities may be included (which should ideally link in with the theme chosen). It should also be noted that:
• One of the student representatives is a vegan (and 15 per cent of the student body is either vegan or vegetarian)
• The other student representative requires a gluten-free diet (5 other students also have the same dietary restrictions)
• The total student body is 100 students
• There is a total of 10 staff members.
• The number of students that attended the party the previous year were 50. All staff members attended.
• Last year’s budget for this event was $6000 and this year the Director, not willing to repeat the mess of last year is willing to spend 50% more – if it can be justified
In this task, the role of the Director will be played by your trainer, who will determine your budget allocation on how convincing your team arguments are. This meeting will form the basis of your meeting minutes. The meeting should run according to the meeting documents prepared before the commencement of the meeting, such as the meeting requirements form and preparation form.
A computer or a similar electronic device should be utilised to record the minutes of the meeting. Minutes should be taken in an electronic format, using Microsoft Word software, as per the organisational requirements. The minutes are to be reviewed to check for errors and edited to ensure accuracy, whilst the document is being made and also once it’s completed.
When chairing the meeting, you must ensure that you comply with all legal and ethical requirements.
When chairing the meeting, you must follow the following organisational procedures.
Organisational procedures to identify participants and sending them meeting invitations
• Meeting invitations are to be sent via email.
• Meeting invitations must include:
o summary of your meeting (date and time)
o the purpose of your meeting
o agenda of the meeting.
Organisational procedures to check transcribed meeting notes:
• Minutes of a meeting must record attendance.
