The herring run was quite the event this year. A number of members all sent in images for us to enjoy this month. If any member has some images they would like to see in the next round of changes, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
Our club has recently incorporated and we are now the Oceanside Photography Society. Over the next months there will be changes to reflect our new identity including a new logo and website address.
The club membership consists of over 95 photographers from novice to professional and everything in between. Our members live, work and play in a photographer’s paradise, the east coast of Vancouver Island in beautiful British Columbia, Canada.
We meet once a month in Qualicum Beach, with half the meeting devoted to education, and the other half covering club business. We also have a dedicated education meeting, optional assignments and one field trip each month, tying into special events in the area as much as possible.
The goal of the club is to promote learning, sharing and the enjoyment of photography in a convivial atmosphere. We welcome new members whether beginners or more experienced photographers. We encourage all members to share their knowledge with each other whether photography or use of their camera and equipment.
Membership is $36 per person per year (May to April incl.) plus a club name badge for a total of $48 and is open to anyone interested in photography. The membership fee is prorated between June and April. Please contact the membership director for details – email@example.com.
Guests are allowed to come to two meetings at no charge; after which they must pay a membership fee in order to continue attending. Members are required to sign a membership form.

Our Annual General Meeting night is on Monday May 1st; there was a scheduling issue with the the Civic Centre and the day was changed.
Elections for our new management team will be held at this meeting. Ed will offer his final message and we will hear from each of the management team. Our slideshows from the month of April will be run and then Ed will announce our photographer of the year and conduct the elections.
Remember that all positions are open, we are all volunteers on the board and we all welcome the opportunity for new members to join us and bring their new ideas. Once the new team has been voted in, announced and introduced we will have a social evening.
As a BC Society, we are required to review the rules under which we operate (check here). Take this opportunity to meet with the new group and discuss any changes that you think would offer improvements to any aspect of the club’s activities.
