Recent Communication from your Chairman - Gary Davis
As some of you will know from conversations with myself, Sue or Jo, the Society has some issues that urgently need addressing. The main one being finance for the demo’s and the exhibition. This year we had to dip into the Societies reserves to cover the cost, at the current rate the Society would run out of money within a couple of years.
In view of this we are proposing the following changes are discussed at the AGM to come into effect for the coming year.
1 Membership is raised to £30 per year, due from November 2016. Members who have already paid for part of 2016/17 will be asked to pay the balance. This change is equivalent to £2.50 a month. It currently takes between 6-8 members to cover the cost of 1 demo
2. Exhibition fees to change to £15 for pictures and £5 for cards, no change to commission. This will help us cover the cost of the venue in advance and possibly return a profit.
Please come along to the AGM to discuss these issues, and share this email with any members who may not have seen it.
Also we are still looking for committee members.
