        Dear Members of Exeter Camera Club,

        Your committee has been discussing the process surrounding the appointment of the club President. Custom and practice, for some years, has been to appoint an ‘Incoming President’ for two years who then serves as President for two years followed by a further two years as the ‘Outgoing President. The committee is concerned the, in effect, six year commitment may be considered onerous and preclude members considering the role of President.

        The committee’s proposal is to shorten the two year appointment for the incoming and outgoing Vice-President to one year. However, the constitution states that there should be a minimum of two Vice-Presidents and it is this rule your committee is proposing is modified.

        The current wording of the constitution reads as follows:

        Rule 5 Club Officers – The officers of the club shall consist of a President, at least two Vice Presidents, Honorary Secretary, Honorary Treasurer, and such other officers as may from time to time be decided. Any member of the club elected to an Officer post must be prepared to make a practical contribution to the organisation and management of club activities. All officers are to be elected each year at the AGM. The President may only serve for two consecutive years.

        The proposed new Rule 5 would then be:

        Rule 5 Club Officers – The officers of the club shall consist of a President, one or more Vice Presidents, Honorary Secretary, Honorary Treasurer, and such other officers as may from time to time be decided. Any member of the club elected to an Officer post must be prepared to make a practical contribution to the organisation and management of club activities. All officers are to be elected each year at the AGM. The President may only serve for two consecutive years.

        The committee plans to hold a Special General Meeting on Thursday 11 January so that members can consider this proposed change and express their views.

        Hon. Secretary Exeter Camera Club
