Hamilton’s Camera Club

2015 AGM held on 24th March 2015

Waikato Photographic Society Annual General Meeting was held in the Melville Methodist Church Hall on 24 March 2015 at 7.30 pm.

All Committee positions were filled. More details will be posted when available, they will be in the Aperture Newsletter sent out to members.

An issue was raised at the awards night that there was no trophies for a number of awards. A discussion will be held at the AGM to discuss ideas for rectifying this. If you wish to speak at the meeting about this subject you will be given a short time to speak on this subject. Constitution (2008).

This issue raised some serious discussion

  • on whether the club should buy more trophies or members donate appropriate items to be mounted.
  • should the number of categories be reduced (by judging colour and B&W together) which would then allow some trophies to be retired.

This decision has been passed onto the new committee to discuss and report back to the members.
