The Camera Branch General Meeting and Social is on Saturday the 16th of November from 2pm. It’s in The Apollo Room, The Crown Tavern, 43 Clerkenwell Green, Clerkenwell, London, Greater London, EC1R 0EG. The nearest tube is Farringdon which is about 5mins away (map here).
As usual, members get their first drink free (bring your member number or register) and there will be a buffet supplied to kick off the social part of the meeting.
We’ll be starting with some presentations on getting the most out of the union: how it is organised, deals for members and most importantly, how to get things done.
Then we will have updates on branch projects like the low budget initiative, a survey of camera people in the factual sector and a proposal for helping you improve your rates.
After industry updates, there will be time for general chat, socialising & networking.
