The club held its Annual General Meeting on Monday 24th February. The main news of the eveningwas the announcement of the WDCC Photographer Of The Year 2019-2020, Andy Gilbert. This is the third time Andy has won the accolade, the last time being the 2016-2017 club year. Also awarded was Jeff Williams who received the Alan Dean Award for the Most Improved Photographer. Congratulations to Andy and Jeff - the full standings are on the relevant menu above.

 

Another key item for last night was the restructure of the committee. Chairman Dave Edwardson stood down after 4 years of great service, for which we thank him wholeheartedly, and Sean Constable also stood down as Treasurer, again after a number of years of great service where our financial reports have been really professionalised. After a reshuffle, and a new committee member being appointed, the current committee is as follows

 

Interim Chairman - Alan Dean

Treasurer / Competitions Secretary - Ian Sprott

Club Secretary - Christine Beedham

Publicity / Members Secretary - Helen Greenwood

Programme Secretary - Bernard Booth

Equipment Secretary - Kelvin Norton

Webmaster - Lawry Simm

 

Please Note: We are still seeking a new Chairperson. We will keep asking at every meeting... Alan has kindly stepped in as a "caretaker manager" to ensure that the could could still run, as without a Chairperson we would have to dissolve the club. If you are interested in taking over the role, or want to joint the committee in a general support role, please speak to any committee member at any meeting.

 

The outline programme for the coming year was also announced, this will be uploaded into the website in the coming days. The minutes of the AGM will be reviewed at the next committee meeting and distributed in due course.
