Club Announcements - Tuesday 19th January 2021

CHRISTMAS EXHIBITION

The exhibition, comprising 113images is now available on the main page of the DCC website.  Thank you to everybody who has contributed.

PROBLEMS WITH PAYPAL SUBSCRIPTIONS

Our membership System recently experienced an issue with PayPal subscriptions where some members had their subscriptions retaken by PayPal without authorisation. To be on the safe side, our Treasurer has terminated all recurring payments from PayPal.  You can of course revert to recurrent payments if you wish by changing the settings on your PayPal account. If you are setting up a PayPal payment, be aware that PayPal will automatically make it recurrent – so check your account if you don’t want this feature.  Please notify the This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you see any irregular activity in relation to your subscriptions.

Instructiuons on cancelling a recurring payment are here.

The following two Tuesdays will be the judging of the final leg of the Winter League and on Tuesday 23rd February we will hold our AGM which will of course be on-line.  The way the dates are working will require any resolutions and any nominations for the 12 member council to be with the Secretary by 9th February; I would encourage all members to consider putting their names forward for election to the council.

HEALTH AND SAFETY UPDATE

Unfortunately we have to close access to the DCC building for the foreseeable future (apart from maintenance visits) - a fire risk assessment has produced recommendations regarding the electrical setup in the building and so we feel it's not responsible to allow people to use the building until these electrical adjustments have been made.   Thank you for understanding.

HONOUR FOR COUNCIL MEMBER

Paul Stanley has just been appointed as director of the FIAP Photo Academy – Online Events.  This is a great honour for Paul who has worked so hard on the programme of events for DCC. 

REMINDER

RTÉ and The National Botanic Gardens are holding a wildlife photographic competition, ‘Eye on Nature’. The closing date is Friday 5 February.  The overall winner will receive a cash prize of €1000 and the 12 finalists’ photographs will be exhibited at The Botanic Gardens from mid-March. The finalists will also receive an annual family pass to all OPW attractions.  See rte.ie/eyeoonnature
