Social media presence

We have a presence on Facebook, Google+, Meetup and Twitter. We prohibited the following information from being shared on these sites:

  • Personal information of our members without consent.
  • Photo's submitted to the competitions without consent.

What we will share:

  • Links to posting on our website
  • Events we organize, this includes the competition meetings, lecture meetings, field trips and workshops.

Both these lists are not final yet and are subject to change. Launch of the Meetup group is planned for August 2013.

Starting times of the meetings

The regular meetings, competition and lectures, will have new starting times.There is no difference anymore between the starting times for competition digital, competition print and.or lecture meetings. The doors will open at 7:00PM and the meeting will start promptly at 7:30PM. For the print competition you will have to bring your prints in before 7:20PM

We increased the dues for couples by $5.00

  • Single person: $45.00
  • Couples: $80.00

Workshops and Lectures

  • Workshops and lectures will be open to the public unless otherwise noted.
  • People who are not a paying member of the club will have to pay $5.00 to attend the regular lecture meetings.
  • Workshops and field trips where we have to charge any amount are not refundable.

Payments

We will be looking into the ability to add the option to pay through credit card for the dues or any other payment. The options for cash and check will still be available.
