Welcome to Benoni Camera Club 2024!
We’ve had our first meeting for the new year and a few changes were apparent. We’ve had a prominent club member in Cathy Dooley leave not just the Chairmanship but also our club, and we’ve had a longstanding member in Shane Else join the Committee, upon request.
While everyone may have their opinions on the recent events, I would like to focus on a different aspect: our club’s ability to weather and even embrace change. We share a deep pool of knowledge and experience and a willingness to assist when required to do so. We are not the Chairperson or even the Committee, we are a group of friends with a shared passion.
In any group of people there will be differences of opinion, which is not bad in itself, but please reach out and above all, keep communication channels open, before deciding to give up on the club.
My wish for the year is twofold: firstly, enjoy the social aspects of photography with our outings and workshops and secondly, encourage continued growth, whether by Salon participation or improving our CERPS standing.
Here’s to a wonderful year of many awesome photos!
