Did I Jump, or was I Pushed?

As reported last month David Evans has resigned the posts of Club Chairman and Competition Secretary.(older news) However in the absence of Mark Somerville David took the Chair at the recent Committee meeting (4th April 2019)   Find the minutes of that meeting here.

In that report, can I draw your attention to AOB: Mark Briscoe raised the need for the web site to be updated and has agreed to look into what might be available. Incorporating a new system for handling competition entries would make the competition secretary’s job simpler.   

At no time has anyone drawn my attention to any change in requirements for the web site either in facilities or design . The first I knew of this was on receipt of the minutes two days ago on the 7th.

At the subsequent AGM on 8th April (last night) although having stepped down from the committee David again chaired the meeting. The minutes of this meeting are yet to be published, but for me one item stood out. Over the course of the weekend Mark had looked into what might be available and buying in web design from outside had been broadly agreed, (not sure between whom) At no time was I approached with regard to re designing our web site nor was I party to any investigations into possible alternatives. Only one template based source was offered at a cost of several hundred pounds. It appears this is going forward.

I was offered the chance of managing this new web site, which I declined, explaining I preferred to design any site I was responsible for from scratch rather than use template based material.

It will then come as no surprise that I have this morning resigned from the committee having effectively been made redundant as you web designer.

This web site should continue to function until you new one is up and running, at which time I presume the domain name www.calnecameraclub.co.uk will be transferred to the new server.


(Monday 29th April 2019) I have still not been asked to publish the minutes of this meeting!
