AGM Reminder – 14 August 6:30pm

Members, don’t forget that the AGM is on 14 Aug and we are starting the night at 6:30pm. Early yes, but we also have a competition night on as well.
 
Remember, if you have not paid, you must be financial to vote at the AGM. Financial members will receive a voting card at the door. Our Treasurer is ready/willing to accept your cash on the night, should you have not paid via direct deposit, in the meantime.
 
There will be a different, one-off raffle on the night. Tickets will be $2 each or 3 for $5. Rather than a photographic prize, this month’s donated prize is a healthy-option dry fryer! Yay!
 
Remember to bring your coins for the door fee ($2) and those raffle tickets.
 
Thank you to all who have accepted nominations for Committee Positions, only one was not filled via nomination (Assistant Secretary). 
 
 
See you there. Raffle Prize

Members, as per the AGM notice, tomorrow is the last day open to send any Committee Nominations in. At COB tomorrow, I will be creating the Agenda document for the AGM. Additionally, I will be creating any Ballot forms, for positions doubled up with nominated members.
 
REPEAT: Tomorrow is the last day to have any nomination in for new committee positions.

Skills Night – 24 July

Tomorrow night our Skills Night is an opportunity to bring a raw or unedited .JPEG image on an SD card/USB and have a mentoring session with one of our educators. 

We will concentrate on; importing, basic manipulation (crop, hue, saturation, luminance, lens correction, clone, heal, dodge and burn), exporting and print module.

 

Don’t bring an image you’ve already worked on, bring one that is still SOOC (straight out of camera). 

 

Bring your $2 coins as the raffle still has a few squares remaining. 4-prizes to choose from!

AGM Proxy Voting – 14 August 18.

The Annual General Meeting of Toowoomba Photographic Society (TPS) is to be held at the TPS Clubrooms (DeMolay House – 90 Margaret Street Toowoomba), 6:30pm on the 14th August.

All financial members are eligible to vote and should you be absent from the AGM you may give your proxy to another FINANCIAL member of your choice.

Members that are given signed proxy papers will be given multiple votes (one per proxy form) at each voting juncture.

 

I’ve attached a proxy form (top form is simple proxy and lower is specific to each agenda item).

Should you receive another member’s proxy, please show this to the door staff on the night of the AGM.

New Competition Year

Members, welcome to a new competition year.
For this next competition year the committee has produced Gold and Silver award cards, for those members who achieve either of these awards in each Aggregate Competition. Our Society uses the awarding of Gold and Silver for progression to higher grades.
Other clubs use similar cards to reward their members for Honour and Merit. Unfortunately, there will not be an award for Bronze recipients.
These cards will be presented at the following month’s Aggregate Competition night, for every award of Gold and Silver.
It is good to honour those members who achieve the highest awards.
Good luck to all in this new competition year.
