    • 2021 AGM Postponement
      • Annual General Meeting (AGM) of Wellington Photographic Society Inc Postponement Notice Unfortunately, we have decided to postpone our AGM. Due to the current level 4 lockdown, the uncertainty around its possible extension and to look after our members, friends and whanau, we’ve made the decision to postpone our 2021 AGM this Thursday. Needless to say, it’s not ideal but we would rather err on the side of caution than take unnecessary risks. We will confirm a new date in the very near future once we can sort an appropriate booking with the Tararua Tramping Club. Hopefully, this most recent outbreak is short-lived and we can all get back to our regular business shortly. We look forward to seeing you again soon! WPS Committee
