Selsey Camera Club

2017 Annual General Meeting

Eighteen members gathered in St Wilfrid's Church Hall on Monday 26th June for the club's Annual General Meeting.

Opening the meeting, the Chairman welcomed everyone and paid tribute to the committee members who had worked hard throughout the past season to ensure that everything ran smoothly and successfully. Wearing his competition secretary's hat, he went on to report that although entries for print competitions were lower than last season's figure, there had been a rise in PDI entries. However, the number of members participating over all the competitions had fallen to a five year low !

Programme Secretary, Joan Taylor, reviewed the various events that had taken place over the past season, including competitions, talks, workshops, outdoor shoots and the inter-club competitions. She then outlined the programme being planned for the coming season including our involvement in the Southern Counties Photographic Federation's print league.

This was followed by Richard Smith's treasurers report and the acceptance of the 2016/17 audited balance sheet together with approval of the appointment of our auditor for 2017/18 - Paul Robinson. Due to a fall in revenue over the past year, a proposal to increase subscriptions was passed unanimously.
