Election of Officers

This is our annual business meeting for election of our four officers to one-year terms, for President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer.  A Nominating Committee is seeking nominees; let Meredith Rafferty, Bruce Livingston or Pam Hoaglund know of your interest.  Incumbents can seek re-election and nominees can also be offered during the annual business meeting.

Amendments to Bylaws

This annual business meeting will also include the members’ vote on recommended amendments to the OCC Bylaws.  You will soon be seeing the recommended amendments through an email announcement to members and they will be read at the May 28th General Member Meeting in advance of the June 25th vote.  The amendments expand the descriptions of our operations and bring the wording into line with today’s practices.  Our Bylaws express who we are as a Club (organized in 1935!) and how we operate in support of us as a nonprofit organization of “photographers helping photographers”.

The Program

The program for the evening will be a slide presentation of photos taken by our members over the past year.  Here are the guidelines for submitting your images to be included in the show.
