The Secretary Says …

Members,

Tomorrow night is a very important night for our camera club. As is normal, committee members are elected by you the members at the AGM. You are aware, due to Austin’s continuous reminders, that there are still some vacancies in the panel of proposed.

While a number of members have continuously given of their time on the various positions, it is unrealistic to imagine that the same names are the only ones that can go forward. I have seen many members with bright imagination and energy to contribute to the club, but have as yet not considered going forward. A club like ours needs the support of all its members, and will grow if we have a healthy and vibrant leadership. We have excelled in our short existence, maybe not always at the national competition stage, but we have a club which has shown it can match any club in terms of exhibitions, projects and more. Now is the time to think of where we go next. What kind of club do members want. 

I have no doubt that many of you members can add to this rich tradition in ways that we haven’t even thought of so far. if you are interested in helping the club why not consider putting your name in the hat? Hyundai has told you “Change is good” so it must be.

The AGM starts at  8:00pm

What's it like to face a hungry polar bear and its cubs as they emerge from their den? Or to swim eye to eye with an enormous Southern Right Whale? How do you look for killer whales in vast reaches of the seas around Antarctica?

Join Doug for an unforgettable evening of extraordinary animal adventures and unique wildlife film footage. Ask Doug questions about his encounters and travels, and discover what it's like to be up close and personal with nature's biggest creatures.
