Christmas Drop In

This month sees our last Drop In of the year and as our guests last year proved to be so popular ACS NSW has invited Christmas Cheer & ACS Goodwill to once again join us at the December Drop In.

Make your way to ACS HQ (address below) on Thursday 21st December and celebrate the season with fellow members, sponsors and guests.

Doors will be open from 6pm.

From our President

Roger Lanser ACS

Seasons greetings and a Merry Christmas from me and the NSW committee.

What a great year we had. Our NSW Awards were very popular and there was so much great work submitted that our Guest of Honour was gob smacked at the quality and consistency of the photography and said the industry was "in safe hands" after seeing all the wonderful vision shot by you our members.

All our Drop Ins were well attended and this consistency will keep going into 2018 as we have some new and revealing news to present to you our members in the coming months.

Wishing you a safe time across the season and I know a lot of you will be working news, getting into helicopters, shooting The Sydney to Hobart, shooting bush fires and all the other disasters that a NSW summer throws at us.

So Merry Christmas to all and see you next year,
Roger Lanser ACS
