The AGM was held on 14th May 2015 and was attended by 28 members. The formal aspects of the AGM were efficiently concluded with headlines as follows:-
- The Chairman’s Report and his financial report addressed the success of our first exhibition at the Gold Hill Museum, the strength of our membership now standing at 45, and our sound financial basis which has been further enhanced by the generous legacy from Kelvin Shuffell.
- Bill introduced the programme for our next season together with full printed details. He has continued to introduce new ideas including extending the Shuffell Trophy to THREE rounds next season. Star Night next year will feature Ben Osborne, perhaps best known for his images of Antarctica in the book of the BBC series “ Life in the Freezer”.
- The Shuffell Trophy Rules were amended to allow for either 2 or 3 rounds each season.
- Membership and Guest fees were agreed to be unchanged at £25 per person and £2 per meeting respectively.
- All Roles and committee participation were left unchanged.
- The Club intends to purchase a higher performance projector before next season which will allow PDIs to be shown at full resolution (1400×1050).
Erika and Mike Harding, who have given the Club two additional trophies for the Print and PDI of the Year winners, then presented all the trophies and certificates to the respective winners: the full details can be found on the Competition/Roll of Honour pages of the web. A further prize was awarded for the most popular exhibition print which went to Adrian White for his “Cygnets“.
