This will be the first Print Competition of the season, comprising Mono and Colour categories for the Club League and the Improvers’ League.
Members will have been advised by email about getting entries to the Print Secretary.
Peter Phillips and others will be demonstrating the equipment they use for print mounting and there will be the opportunity to practise for yourself.
Next Thursday’s meeting goes under the title of “Beginners”, but this is a bit of a misnomer, since we know from previous occasions we have run this that many people with a variety of experience have found the information useful.
Chris Gibbins will be giving a presentation which will cover the function of the buttons and dials on your camera and how to use these to produce better results. He will also include aspects of composition, so that taken together, what you produce is less of a snap and more of a photograph! After a break for tea/coffee, if you bring your camera along (together with its manual) and have any questions about it, there should be someone around to help.
We start at 8pm and the cost to non-members is only £3.
8) Annual General Meeting
Once in each calendar year the Committee shall convene an Annual General Meeting of the Club, which all members shall be entitled to attend, for the purpose of:
receiving the Annual Report of the Committee and the annual audited statement of accounts;
appointing Honorary Officers of the Club;
accepting resignations of the Committee;
appointing a qualified auditor or auditors;
making recommendations to the Committee and
voting on proposals to amend this Constitution in accordance with clause 13 hereof whenever necessary.
13) Alterations to the Constitution
Any proposal to alter this Constitution must be delivered in writing to the Secretary of the Club not less than fourteen days before the date before the date of the meeting at which it is first to be considered. An alteration will require the approval of both:
a) a simple majority of members of the Committee present at a meeting and
b) a two-thirds majority of members of the Club present at a General Meeting.
Under paragraph 13, the Committee have agreed that the constitution should be amended so that we are not obliged to employ a qualified auditor to go through our finances.
So we propose to replace the phrase above, in red italics, with the phrase
appointing an independent monitor of the Club’s finances
We need a two-thirds majority in a General Meeting to make this change.
We hope that this simple change meets with everyone’s approval and is passed.
On Thursday, we have the first PDI competition of the season to be judged by Jeff Lawrence. As usual there will be two competitions, League and Improvers’.
Reminder that for league competitions we need images no later than Friday of the week before each competition.
