Old Business
  • Linda mentioned that the format of the monthly review of assignment photos has been critiqued by some members. In order to enable discussion and questions during the review of the assignment photos the board has decided to dispense with the anonymity for the next 2-3 months after which the club will decide whether to continue like that or revert back to anonymous photos.
  • After some discussion, it was decided to change the name of the assignment photo that receives the most votes to “Photo of the Month”.
  • Sandy Gilbert mentioned that the planning of the Foto Fiesta is on track, and that the deadline for submitting photos is August 15. Linda took an action to make sure that information about how and when to submit photos will be published as soon as possible on the club’s web-site.

Viewing Assignment Photos of the Month
  • This month’s photo critique was led by David Goodge.  The assignment was “Patriotism”.

New Business
  • Linda asked if there is interest in setting up a meet-up group and a coordinator for monthly excursions. Some members indicated that having someone taking responsibility for arranging and coordinating a monthly activity would be nice.
 
Open Discussion
