Council Meeting January 8th 2020 Highlights

No formal annual exhibition will be held this year at the Abbey to reduce costs. We will focus our attention on publicity via the quarterly Hexham Courant Feature, exhibiting in shop windows via the Hexham Open Space Initiative and exhibiting at the Northumberland County Show.


A volunteer is urgently required to coordinate our participation in the Northumberland County Show starting in early February – please contact the President if you can help.


Dave and Kevin will develop next year’s agenda in order to transition the Syllabus Secretary duties from Rob.


The Society will sponsor the film Gregory Crewdson: Brief Encounters (2012) at this year’s Hexham Film Festival.


Competition Rules will be modified slightly, subject to AGM approval, to allocate five places in each competition irrespective of entry size and to vary only the number of highly commended awards.


Externally judged Open PDI competition to be extended to three rounds next season – subject to approval by AGM but to be allowed for in the syllabus and appointment of judges. The internally judged themed PDI competitions will be retained.
