An open letter from the chairs of Otley Camera Club
On Thursday night, the Otley Camera Club AGM was held.
The main change from the meeting was the appointment of a new chair. Chris and Richard were delighted and excited to be elected as joint chair for the next year.
The first task for the chairs must be to give a huge thank you to Phil who was chair for the previous two years. He found himself in the job very suddenly when only a month into the role of Vice Chair the then current chair, David, decided to audition for a place on Dancing with Ice with very serious leg breaking consequences. From that point, Phil worked tirelessly to take the club forward and he has stepped down from the position leaving the club strengthened and in a very positive position. Once again, Phil, thank you and thank you for the offer of support that you have given ourselves and the committee over the coming year.
It is the aim of the new chairs to continue the development of the club. We will be working over the next couple of months, alongside the committee, to ensure that the rest of this year's programme runs smoothly, that we have a successful Annual Exhibition and looking into the future we have a great programme lined up for the 2020/2021 season and that we ensure that we retain current members as well as welcoming new members.
