Monday night’s meeting was action packed, with the AGM, Spring Print Exhibition and the Projected Image of the Month. The AGM saw the appointment of Kate Burton as the new President of the Society. Kate takes over the role from John Casey who steps down after a two year term – John also held the position for another two year term several years ago. The council and members of the society thank John for all the time and effort he has put into leading the society during his term as President.
This is Kate’s first time as President of DPS, or any society for that matter, and she is looking forward to the opportunity. She will have the support of all members as she takes on this role, and especially that of the council. We look forward to the next meeting when Kate will take up her position as President.
After the AGM the Spring Print Exhibition was held and Paul Sorrell (Natural History) and Alan Dove (Open) were on hand to provide comments on the accepted prints. Congratulations to Emiko Cowell, a relatively new member, who was awarded the Champion Open Print, and Craig McKenzie who was awarded the Champion Natural History Print.
