After two years without an in-person AGM it felt slightly strange convening in the Wells Cole Hall for this event. We did have a quorum but we also received very many apologies.
The chairman opened the meeting and welcomed all members. She then commented that WDPC had done well to survive as a camera club despite the difficulties of the last two years. None the less if we are to keep going then we would need more new committee members in the future, not least a chairman.
All the reports had been previously circulated to members but there was scope for them to ask questions of any of the committee. The accounts were approved by all, the External Examiner was proposed and seconded and the new committee elected:
Chairman Andy Caws, Vice-chairman Roy Scrivener, Secretary Rachael Trivett, Treasurer Marnie Ball and Di Jackson, Jack Mitchell, Pam Rutty and Liz Blake as committee members.
The new chairman Andy proposed a vote of thanks to the outgoing chairman.
The official business being completed the members were treated to a slide show of the high scoring images throughout the year culminating with the presentation of certificates and awards to the winners of both the Photographer of the year and Image of the Year. These can be seen here.
Members were also treated to slide show of images from this year's outings, which we were all delighted had been able to take place this year.
Thanks to Di and Roy for the slide shows.
