Brian Coleman AFIAP AWPF APAGB Hon.FWPF

It was an enormous pleasure for me, at the WPF’s AGM on Sunday 7-Mar-21, to be able virtually to present to Brian Coleman the Award for Meritorious Service of the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (APAGB) and to congratulate him on his achievement.  This is an award which is given to individual club members who have given meritorious service over many years within the PAGB community of member Federations and affiliated clubs.  Brian meets that criterion in spades.

He is a long-time member of Bridgend CC and has been its General Secretary for many years.  Clubs view him as a popular judge and presenter and, over more recent years, he has been selecting both National and International exhibitions.  On the WPF Executive, he has held the position of Chairman of the Welsh Salon, expanding the Salon to include members of the NWPA.  At the same time, he became Vice-President, President and Immediate Past President.  After he handed over the reins of the Welsh Salon, he became Honorary General Secretary and now remains as a Past President member, always willing to offer the benefit of his varied experience.

During the period of his Presidency, it became known that most of our funds had gone missing and Brian led the Federation successfully through that particularly difficult time.

I sit on the APAGB Committee of the PAGB and so I know that, when his nomination was circulated, all of the members approved it, without question, as soon as they had read the papers.

Brian, I look forward to the time when I shall be able to shake you by the hand and congratulate you face to face.

Peter A Young LRPS CPAGB AFIAP APAGB (Immediate Past President of the WPF, Chairman (now) of the PAGB’s Awards for Meritorious Service Committee).
