Tuesday 31 January 2012, 6pm at Headland House will host the third NUJ London Photographers’ Branch Annual Delegate Meeting. We will also be holding branch nominations for the new National Executive Position (NEC) Photographers’ Seat and we will be passing an important motion on the Leveson Inquiry, calling for a nation wide UK Press Card Code of Conduct.
In the first part of the meeting we are very privileged to have Nigel Dickinson travelling over from Paris to discuss privacy law in France and its effect on photography and reporting. We also have the NUJ Senior Campaigns and Communications Officer Sarah Kavanagh, taking time out of her busy schedule to talk to the branch about what the union has being doing about the Leveson Inquiry. With the NUJ being a core participant, Sarah has been working with Michelle Stanistreet and can fill us in on the latest developments and what we can expect next.
The second part of the meeting will most importantly be the LPB AGM, where branch members vote for the committee members they want to represent them over the coming year. Any full branch member can be nominated for a position. Temporary and Student members cannot hold a position but can be co-opted on to the committee to take a non-portfolio position. We encourage all members to attend and get involved.
The Branch Committee positions are,
Union Learning Representative.
We will also hold nominations for the NEC Photographers’ Seat. Anyone wishing to be nominated for this voluntary position must attend this meeting, as all nominations must be brought to a constitutionally held meeting and the January AGM is th only meeting before the deadline for nominations.
