Narooma Camera Club’s Christmas Party was held in the Montague Room at Club Narooma on Tuesday Evening 17th December 2019. The party was followed by the club’s Annual General Meeting and presentation of awards for the Image of the Year.
Last year’s (2018) AGM was a disappointing affair, with the club unable to form a committee for the year. NCC was saved from disbanding by a dedicated core of members who volunteered to run a jury-rigged committee to keep the club afloat. All members of the club owe a debt of gratitude to Brian Gunter, Krysia St Clair, and Rosy Williams, who prevailed with help throughout the year from other club members. Under the circumstances, it turned out to be a fairly successful year.
This year’s AGM was opened by Mike St Clair acting as de facto President. Reports were presented from the “Secretary”, “Treasurer”, and “Events Officer” and accepted by the members present.
During 2019, a group of members concerned for the ongoing future of the club held informal meetings with an eye to forming a management group to present to members at this year’s AGM. As a result, the following nominations were put to the members, and all positions were elected unopposed:
President Wes Smith
Secretary Ally Aitken
Treasurer Wendy Fisk
Events Officer Katherine Wagner
Facebook Officer Krysia St Clair
Club Membership Officer Sue Lawson
Web Site Officer Russell Howick
Congratulations, and thanks to all.
We're all looking forward to a rejuvenated club as we head into our 20th year.
