Regional AGM meeting

27 February 2017

Region: South West

Sunday 26th February was the date of the Regional AGM, we were pleased to welcome about 40 members and a special welcome to Nicola Young, the newly appointed Volunteer Coordinator from Bath.

The meeting followed the usual format with the various reports, from Regional Organiser, Treasurer. Web editor, Regional travelling portfolios, West Cornwall Group and the Regional SIG's.

Following these and some discussion about blogs and Facebook, the meeting thought that the blogs were still useful as not everyone was on Facebook.

The elections for RO and Committee were all agreed, with the present encumbents being re-elected for another year.

A further discussion ensued about the Strategic plan formulated from headquarters, a copy of which is now available on the main website.

The meeting was closed at 11.35am after which an informal discussion was held about topics which members wished to talk about, Carol Ballenger advised of a meeting at The Photographers Gallery in London in conjuction with the London Group. Nicola Young spent a few minutes explaining her role within the RPS and how the main aim was to standardise some roles and help the volunteers.

After lunch we were treated to seeing 8 successful Regional members panels from the last year, some excellent worth followed by Marcia Fry's "A" panel from a few years ago and the three committee members showed some of their work.

An excellent day with the AGM work completed quite quickly and viewing around 120 members images.
