Outcome of AGM 2017

Exensive consultation was undertaken during the early part of 2017 to consider how members wish Carnoustie Art Society to be organised and managed in the future. This was prompted by the resignation of Secretary Rosie Peters after many years of service to the Society. 

Members have decided to trial a new approach to managing the society which involves working as a collaborative with every member making a contribution. Wendy Murray agreed to undertake a co-ordinator role for the first year to establish the new system. Ed Walker continues as President and Gail Gilbert as Treasurer.

A copy of the revised constitution is available for download from this site.
