MMPC Board Election

The MMPC Board meets regularly. The Board meeting schedule is posted on the calendar at http://mmphotoclub.com/calendar. The list of the current Board members is at http://mmphotoclub.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/06/MMPC-Board-Members-03212021.pdf.

Recent meetings have been virtual, rather than in-person. We continue to welcome any MMPC members who are interested in serving on the Board. An election will be held before the October 2021 meeting for the positions of Secretary, Treasurer, and MMPC Board Member at-large. Pam Hastings-Albright has agreed to be nominated as Secretary, Karen Towner has agreed to be nominated as Treasurer, and Karrie Baker has agreed to be nominated as member at-large. The election will be held during the October 6 meeting, as required by the club’s by-laws. Please contact any MMPC Board member if you are interested in being nominated.

We will be contacting venues with the idea of holding a Gallery Show in the future. Of course, these plans could change. Thanks to those who responded to the poll on the Facebook page. We will keep you informed as plans develop.
