SCC Board Meeting

Evaluation Nights:
* There will now be only 3 prints total consisting of both combined color and monochrome prints [just like digital] per Evaluation Night effective April, 2014.
* There will be a break between digital general and assigned to enable critiques, discussion, and shorten silence periods.
* Silence during judging will still be required so that the judges are not influenced in their scoring.
* One judge will be the primary critiquer while the other two judges can add a brief commentary to enhance the educational value of the critiques.

Sponsor of New Members Program - The club is now actively providing sponsors to help new members get orientated with the club procedures, get advice, and meet other members. Thanks to Frank Crommelin for this suggestion.

Reminder: The club e-mail distribution list is only for club related events and discussions.
