  1. Postering

    • There has been some confusion as to who should be designing posters.

    • Would Sarah (FYR) like to design the posters for Outweek?

    • Focus on putting posters up in academic buildings rather than first year residences.

    • Try postering at bus stops.

  2. Event planning

    • Try to have another all-ages/beer garden joint event.

    • The first event of the year was a joint event and had the largest attendance. Although attendance does tend to drop off later in the year, numbers might increase if we do another joint event.
