IAWF Committee Members

We are always keen to hear from new people who would like to join the committee. Meetings are not frequent and are arranged around our unfathomable work commitments. They usually take place in Bristol, with more far flung members participating via Skype. Apart from discussing IAWF business, meetings are a rare chance for fellow camera people to get together and put the world to rights. We also have representation at GTC committee meetings, and share that responsibility amongst ourselves.

Mandy Leith is our secretary, and The IAWF Committee is currently made up from the following members:-
