On occasion the Committee will create a subcommittee tasked with carrying out certain duties or planning for the club. The use of Subcommittees allow us "share the load" and create specialised groups of people.
The subcommittees are all created by the committee. Inclusion of members to the subcommittee are at the discretion of the subcommittee convener with consultation of the Committee. All subcommittees report their activities to the Committee.
One continuing subcommittee is our Competitions Subcommittee. The Competitions Subcommittee members are tasked with:
Currently our Competitions Subcommittee members are: Tania Chalmers, Brett Ferguson, Cathy Buchanan, and James Troi.
When identified, members with local knowledge of our intended destinations are often recruited for our Weekend Away Subcommittees. Along with other members and members of the club's main committee, these subcommittees put in all the hard work to ensure our weekends away are well planned and executed. Often this includes reconnaissance of the destination, communicating with local guides/photographers, camera clubs, businesses, and points of interest; all to find the best photographic opportunities and experiences for the members and their guests who attend these weekends.
The efforts of the Weekend Away Subcommittees can not be understated. A lot goes into creating the itinerary, the committee is grateful to these volunteers.
Regular members of our Weekend Away Subcommittees include: Nola Kelsey, Gayle Tout, Margaret Turner, Françoise Muller-Robbie, Catherine Stevenson. With many other unsung members.
If you feel you can support our club by being a member of a subcommittee reach out and let us know. Approach a committee member at a meeting, or email email@example.com.
