For the first time in a long time, the name Harry Emmett doesn't feature on our list of committee members after he stood down from the post of Vice President at our recent AGM to make way for 'new blood'. Harry, who is CPAGB and a life member of the club as well as being a life member of the L&CPU and on the executive committee of the ICPA, has been involved with Accrington Camera Club and on the committee for some 40 years. A very big thank you to him. Our 116th AGM also saw Mary Braithwaite return to the committee, with the other posts remaining unchanged. Stewart Heath was thanked for continuing to organise refreshments at the weekly meetings. We also asked for volunteers to compile press reports of our meetings and encouraged more members to contribute to our monthly newsletter, which Paul Wright puts together. Members were also reminded about our series of workshops - which this year are on the theme of 'back to basics'.

Members please note that DPI entries to all club competitions need to be 1600x1200 instead of 1400x1050. This is to reflect changes made nationally and by the L&CPU. In all other respects they can be processed and submitted as normal.

Club members should enter images into competitions using the PhotoEntry software. Log-in HERE or in the Members' Area, which also has a user guide.

Don't forget that as an Accrington Camera Club member it is possible to receive some photographic mentoring from a more knowledgeable or experienced member of the club. So whether you want to know more about your camera settings, how best to convert images to mono, or any other query - get in touch with our president Ian and he will find the most appropriate member to speak to.

Don't forget that members have access to equipment owned by the club. Laptop and projector - see Mary Braithwaite. Calibration Spyder - see Martin Yates. Slide scanner - see Harry Emmett.
