PAUL WHITHAM LPSNZ will assume the role of President of the Photographic
Society of New Zealand at the completion of the 68th National Convention in Christchurch.
As a member of Council since 2015, Paul has fulfilled a myriad of portfolios and contributed to all aspects of Society activities.
These years stand Paul in good stead to manage all Presidential responsibilities. Karen Lawton of Christchurch continues in the role of Vice President.
Moira Blincoe LPSNZ becomes the Immediate Past President. Returning Councillors are Craig McKenzie of Dunedin who looks after National Competitions
and Salons and the 4 Nations Salon and Jane Muller of Havelock North who manages the Communications and Marketing portfolio.
Toya Heatley APSNZ of Lower Hutt decided she missed us all so much she stepped forward for nomination and will assume the role of Councillor for Events.
Toya is also our talented webmaster so as well as working on her own IT contracts, she will be juggling many balls for PSNZ.
Welcome to Auckland Photographic Society member Prue Scott to Council who will fulfil the portfolio of Publications.
Prue’s professional experience in journalism and public relations will stand her in good stead for this portfolio, managing the production of CameraTalk and New Zealand Camera.
Obviously, with Paul moving into the President’s role, he has had to relinquish the editor’s role of CameraTalk.
Prue will be working with two new members who take on the editor’s and the designers’ roles respectively.
Chryseis Phillips of New Plymouth will be formally appointed to the role of Secretary at the Annual General Meeting at our National Convention.
She has extensive administration and secretarial experience, gained by working in a variety of organisations including The Salvation Army, kindergarten, architecture and healthcare.
