Meeting Format

Central Branch Meetings are generally held the fourth Monday of the month.

The Calendar has a full listing of scheduled meetings. Other dates may be added for informal events offered to those interested during the year. These may consist of visiting the latest AGO/ROM exhibitions, or those at other galleries. Members will be notified by email of these events.

Your Contact Details:

Please ensure we have your most recent email address. We can't be expected to know you've got a new email unless you tell us. Also, please make sure our spectacular missives are not going into your spam. All changes of email details go to: Kristina Laukkanen

Your Personal Property at All Meetings:

Please note that you and you alone are responsible for the safe handling and security of ANY personal or professional belongings at ANY PPOC meeting. Yes, really. Anything that gets damaged, goes missing, somebody fumbles - NOT the responsibility of PPOC.

Message here: Don't touch anything that doesn't belong to you - even if you're trying your best to be helpful. Be thoughtful and careful about where you put food and drink, and do not handle anybody else's gear, photos, albums, books, clothing without their expressed permission. If however, your carelessness breaks somebody else's (or our branch's stuff), you will be thrashed (in turn) by all of us. Comprendé?

Every Meeting:

We will follow the same exact timing so don't be late. Meetings will start exactly on time - even if it's just the committee and one church mouse in attendance. So be there on time, or miss something good. We have so much good stuff we want to bring you this coming year we just can't start late!

Here's the outline for each meeting:

  • 4.00pm - 4.30pm Registration - don't be late … just don't.
  • 4.30pm - 6.00pm Image Critique - You are encouraged to enter so as to receive feedback on your latest work.
    (Just so you know, we will have sandwiches)
  • 6.00pm - 6.25pm 5x5x5 (five members talking about five favourite images for five minutes)
  • 6.30pm - 7.30pm Guest speaker
  • We are out by 9:00 p.m.
