Region: South West
Firstly and most importantly Jenny Leathes was presented with a Fenton Medal to recognise her contribution to the RPS South Western Region. The President, Derek Birch presented the Medal immediately after Jenny had given a presentation, showing her images taken in Scotland, to the audience. Michael Pritchard, The Secretary General also attended to presentation
The AGM was very well attended, with over 30 members in attendance.
Martin Howse, the new Regional Organiser, welcomed Michael Pritchard and Derek Birch to the meeting, the real reason for their attendance having to be kept secret until the presentation of a Fenton Medal to Jenny Leathes.
The necessary reports from the various members of the Committee were read, and accepted, with a short talk by Michael Pritchard filling in some detail on the new website.
Martin Howse ARPS was elected as the new Regional Organiser, with the rest of the committee being re-elected en bloc.
After the meeting was closed it was the turn of the Regional Committee to make presentations of their work, these being a digital presentation by Jenny Leathes followed by print shows by Di Wilkins, Mick Medley, John Widdows and Martin Howse.
