The ACS held its 2020 AGM online this weekend via Zoom. This year's meeting took place on Sunday following the successful ACS National Awards for Cinematography, which were also held via the video conferencing platform.
The AGM addressed a range of items including the potential sale of the ACS's National Headquarters with the view of enabling the society to find premises that will enable them to offer more diverse usable spaces and facilities for their members.
The success and reputation of AC Magazine, ongoing efforts to improve gender parity within the society and the importance of the wellbeing of their valued sponsors in the current economic climate were also discussed as part of the agenda.
