Standing Orders for subscriptions

Thank you to everyone who has renewed before today’s deadline. We are still a few people short and I would be grateful if you could let me know if you don’t intend to rejoin the club next year. Otherwise  please make your payment of £10 as soon as possible so that you maintain your membership. 

Please, please, please check that your standing order, if you have set one up, is cancelled for this year. Having to refund a payment does make additional work for both the treasurer and myself as we have to contact you for bank details etc. We cannot hold it over to pay for the next instalment of the subscription later in the year. 

If there are any problems with payment then please let me know. Meanwhile stay safe and continue to enjoy the remainder of our Zoom meetings for July.

Subscription reminder

A polite reminder that next Wednesday 15th July is the deadline for paying your interim £10 subscription for next season’s membership of the club. Should you have mislaid the payment details then just get in touch via the membership email address, membership@chichestercameraclub.org.uk

Alternatively you can telephone  me on the phone number shown in this year’s pink programme leaflet or use my personal email if you have details.

Thank you to those people who have renewed so far and I hope that more of you will be joining us for next year’s exciting programme of talks and competitions.

 

Interim Subscriptions for 2020-21 season

Thank you to everyone who has paid the Interim £10 subscription for next season.

For those of you who might have forgotten, been away or lost the personal email that was sent earlier, I would please ask that you make payment in the next two weeks to guarantee your membership for next year. 15th July is the deadline.

As was explained at the AGM the remainder of the subscription will be due at a later date once we are clear as to when we shall be able to offer a full programme of events at the Tangmere Visitor Centre. This will be rebudgeted to take account of the lack of “live” meetings.

If you have lost the details of how to pay etc which was sent out by email please contact membership@chichestercameraclub.org.uk and I shall be happy to send out new details for you.

I hope you have been able to take advantage of the extra Zoom meetings that have been running recently as a way of thanking you for your patience in these difficult times. Please also remember that the deadline for submitting your four digital images for the Summer Showcase at the Novium is 10th July.

Have a safe and socially distanced Summer.

new badges for 2019/20 season

New badges are about to be printed for next season for new members and anyone whose badge is not found in the boxes. If you have a badge at home can you let the membership secretary know as soon as possible please so that badges are not duplicated.

Thank you and please reply by email  to membership@chichestercameraclub.org.uk  or by replying to this post.

Membership renewal 2019/20

The time has come once again to renew your membership of the Camera Club for next season.

In an attempt to maintain a consistent number of members I would like to ask everyone to pay their subscription a little earlier this year. This will then give us a clearer idea of how many spaces we might have for new members to join us in September. This was discussed at the AGM and the view of the people present was that this would be a sensible way forward. If you weren’t able to attend the meeing and would like to have more details of the reasoning behind this then please look at the recent papers for the AGM.

Membership renewal this year is £62 and I would be extremely grateful if you could make your payment by July 15th. You should receive an email with the details of how to pay by Bank Transfer in the coming days. Cheques can still be sent to my home address which will be on the email, however I shall not be at the last meeting of the season for any more cash payments. If you have a Standing Order set up for later in the year please make sure you amend it for both date and amount as I am sure you would not want to pay twice!

If you do not intend to remain a member for next year then please let me know so that I can start the process of inviting people from the waiting list.

Thank you for your co operation in this matter, it will make my job and that of the Treasurer so much easier than previously.

MEMBERSHIP RENEWALS

The end of the season is approaching rapidly and here are a few reminders and requests from the Membership Secretary:

  1. Next year the annual subscription due is £62, an increase of £1 over last year, as was agreed. If you have a standing order set up please remember to change the amount.
  2. If you wish to pay by cash please do so by 16th May. I am also able to accept cheques now or later by post. Details for bank transfers will be sent out to you later.
  3. If you feel that you will not be able to join us again next year for any reason then I would ask you please to let me know as soon as possible so that new members can be invited to join in September. This is particularly relevant this year as we have larger than usual membership numbers and I would like to know how many people from the waiting list I can invite to join us.
  4. Finally if your details, such as email address or phone number, have changed then please let me know.

To contact me you should email membership@chichestercameraclub.org.uk

Thank You

Subscriptions for 2018/19 season

Our first meeting of the season is rapidly approaching, so I would like to remind everyone that if you have not yet paid your subscription of £61 for the year then please do so as soon as possible. Your membership will officially expire on 14th September. Cheques will be gratefully accepted at the meeting or you can pay on-line using the bank details that were sent to you earlier.

If you are not intending to join us again this year then please, please let me (Linda Bullimore) know as we still have a couple of people on the Waiting list who would be grateful of a place this year.

Subscriptions for 2018/19 season

As we approach the latter part of the summer I hope we are all eagerly awaiting the new camera club season. 

It would make my job as Membership Secretary so much easier if we could have all subscriptions paid before the first meeting so that I don’t need to be chasing people up. As a reminder the new subscription is £61 for this year.

So far less than half the membership have paid and I would be extremely grateful if anyone who is not intending to renew his/her membership lets me know as soon as possible.

Details of how to pay were sent out earlier in the summer; payment by bank transfer, cheque sent to me or cash to David Harris or myself is acceptable. If you have lost the bank details then please contact me.

Enjoy the rest of the summer.

 

Renewing your membership for September 2018

The time of year has come when I need you to renew your membership of Chichester Camera Club by paying your annual subscription.

This year the subscription will be £61, an increase of £1 as agreed. If you have set up a Standing Order for payment then please remember to make this change.

I have sent an email to all club members with details of how to pay but if you have any problems with this please feel free to contact me. The email also gives details of the new “Consent To Use Your Images” process; this is for information only.

As this is my first year as Membership Secretary I would really appreciate your cooperation in making your payments in good time, preferably before the Annual Exhibition, so that we have an idea of numbers for next year, and in any case by September 14th when your membership will lapse.

Please let me know if, for any reason, you will not be renewing your membership this year so that I am able to offer your place to other people on the waiting list. We often get people interested in joining at the Annual Exhibition so I would be grateful if you could let me know your intention before then.

Meanwhile enjoy this lovely summer.

 

Small Print of the Year Winners

Following close scrutiny by the Selection Committee, Guy Partington’s image “Harriet” was judged to be the overall winner of the Small Print Competition for this season. Guy was a well deserved winner having entered every competition this year despite being away for a long period. Seven of his images featured in the final fifteen and he also achieved a third place position with “Maori Greeting”.

In second place was Gary Howes’ image “Eagle Eye” and he also achieved a Highly Commended for “Kingfisher”. Gary is a new member this year so I am sure he will continue to feature in next season’s competition. Mike Busby and Simon Jones, also new members, are to be congratulated for having photos selected for the final fifteen.

Thanks are also due to all the other photographers who entered the competition during the year, namely: Nikki Holden, Lynn Painter, Jo Tricklebank, Stuart Whyte, Tim Crabb and Stuart Heir.

Let’s continue to make this a keenly fought competition next year.
