Message from Tom Watson, Secretary regarding arrangements for the opening night of the Season

Opening Night, Tuesday 3rd September, will be a busy night, especially for our Treasurer who will be seated at the entrance to the Hall from 6:30PM to collect annual subscriptions from both rxisting members and anyone new who is applying to become a member for the forthcoming season. Annual Subcriptions for FULL members are still just £40 and JUNIOR members £25.

Annual subscriptions to be a member of the Society become due on the 1st September. Existing members have, in accordance with the current rules, until the 15th October to pay their annual subscription to continue their membership of the Society.

Since the Opening night is a Special Presentation those existing members who do not pay their annual subscription on the night will be required to purchase a ‘guest ticket’ at the door at a cost of £10 to attend the meeting. As in previous years provided their subcription is sunsequently paid before the October deadline the cost of purchasing this ‘ticket’ will be refunded/deducted from the total due.

To make life-easier please bring along a cheque already made out to Norwich and District Photographic Society. Membership cards for the new season will be handed out at the next meeting at Chapel Field Methodist Church Hall on Tuesday 17th September.

Again, in keeping with tradition anyone who is not a current member of the Society but has bought a ‘guest ticket’ will only have to pay the balance due (after deducting the cost of the guest ticket) provided they complete an application form to join the Society and pay the remainder of their annual subsription not later than the night of the next 2 subsequent meetings that prospective members are allowed to attend as a ‘temporary member’ before joining the Society (in this case by 24th September).
