2020 AGM MEETING AND TALKS

AGM  WEDNESDAY 19TH AUGUST 2020

REFER TO THE LINKS to the documents for the MINUTES of 2019 AGM and the  AGENDA FOR 2020 AGM

Please note that we are holding this year’s AGM by Zoom. A link will be sent to each and every member by personal email from Greg Carruthers who has been instrumental in enabling us to hold our committee meetings and presentations via Zoom. You will receive a link to the AGM meeting on Wednesday morning. If you do not receive this, please contact Greg by his personal email: gkcarruthers@gmail.com.

Please note that nominations for committee positions closed last Friday midnight.

We have organised a slightly different format this year which starts off at 7pm with 2 mini talks for you. The AGM follows and after that meeting we have another 2 mini talks. The first talks are “Dodging and burning basics” by Roy Killen then Dennis Archibald speaks about “Can I take your photograph?” persuading people to let him fire away!

The third talk will be given by Greg Carruthers  on “How to remove halos from your images” and finally Diane Schofield will talk about “The future of photography”. All gems from our generous speakers.
