JOHN BUTLER ELECTED PRESIDENT OF THE IRISH PHOTOGRAPHIC FEDERATION

John Butler

Drogheda Photographic Club is one of the founder members of the Irish Photographic Federation (IPF).   We are very proud of our long association with the IPF and, from the outset, we have been very active in promoting and supporting the organisation. The IPF is the national representative body of photographic clubs, societies and groups in Ireland.

One of our best known members, Des Clinton, was the first President of the IPF.  Des also served two further terms in this role.  The President is elected by the IPF Council for a three year term of office, chairs Council meetings and has overall responsibility for the smooth running of the organisation.

We are delighted that another member of our Club, John Butler, was elected as President of the IPF at the March 2021 Council meeting. During his term of office  John is committed to continuing the excellent progress that the IPF has made over the years.  He looks forward to working with Council and our affiliated clubs, north and south of the border, to continue to promote photography in Ireland.  John’s election as President is a great honour for John and for our Club which this year celebrates its fiftieth anniversary.
