The South East Region has over 1100 Members and covers the counties of Kent, Surrey, East Sussex and West Sussex. We are co-operating with the Special Interest Groups to provide a programme of events across the Region which will cover some topics not normally available through the activities of the local photography clubs.
In October 2012, the President circulated the Members of the Region seeking their views on the structure of the Region and, in February this year, he presided over a general meeting of Members in the Region, held at Crawley Down, to consider the feedback received. At the meeting, it was agreed that the boundaries of the Region should be retained, but that it should be run as three Areas within the Region under a single Regional Organiser. Several Members offered to assist with the running of the Region and I found myself volunteering to be the new Regional Organiser.
We have now an enthusiastic Committee comprising a Regional Treasurer/Webmaster, Kent Area Representative, Surrey Area Representative and 5 Members. Their details may be found under Committee Members.
