September 11, 2014 meeting

Great to see everyone at the meeting tonight. Not a bad turnout for the first meeting of the year. Our new President (Jeannette Knower) handled her new position like a Pro.

We discussed changing the Blog/Newsletter “What’s Going On At VVCC” Blog to more of a Travel Blog. When I first set up the Blog, I thought it would be easy to maintain, but it quickly became very time consuming. I only had 2 people help take notes when I couldn’t be at the meetings.

During a board meeting earlier this Summer, it was mentioned that having all the information we discuss at our meetings, available on the Blog for the public to view, might not be the best idea. It isn’t fair to our Paid Members who actually come to the meetings to get the information first hand.

So, we are going to try something different. We are changing the Blog/Newsletter to a Photography Travel Blog called “Who’s Traveling This Week?”. In particular we are looking for stories related to Travel Photography. Tell us where you traveled – How you planned your travels to include photography – What gear you planned to take – Include pictures if you can – try to paint a picture for us (not literally), about your entire experience.  Send me an Email with your story and any pictures you would like to share. Give me a Title for the Story and I will add it to our Travelers Blog.

For those who have already subscribed to the Blog/Newsletter that do not want to receive Travel Blog information, you may Unsubscribe by clicking on the Unsubscribe link at the bottom of the Newsletter if you wish. We hope that you continue to read the Blog and even contribute your story.

See You All September 25th.
