PPSNYS' 110th President Takes Office

President's Welcome

CPWelcome to the Professional Photographers' Society of New York State (PPSNYS).
Thank you to all who are taking the time to read this, the first of my Presidents Messages. First of all, I want to thank Honey for all of her hard work and dedication throughout her years as an officer and as President. She was ever present setting up and maintaining our Facebook presence, which has really increased the publics exposure to professional photography. I would also like to thank the members of PPSNYS for having the confidence in me to elect me as President. PPSNYS has been a huge part of my life since 1985 and the relationships I have made through my involvement are the most precious. In fact, I met my husband, Ray, through PPSNYS. It doesnt get better than that!
Being your President is a responsibility I dont take lightly. It is my intention to visit each section and discuss with members on a local level their concerns and ideas, to make PPSNYS a thriving organization once again. I kind of feel like I am preaching to the choir, but the most valuable benefits of membership, camaraderie and friendship, come from being involved - attending convention, working on committees, serving as a section or state officer. In an effort to expand the pool of participating members, I will be calling on the general membership to serve on a variety of committees to help move PPSNYS forward in these challenging times. Im sure I can count on each of you to support me in my efforts!
During the PNE Convention, I spoke with members from across New York State and the most exciting thing to me is that we have many young, talented members with energy and ideas. I cant wait to pick their brains and implement their wonderful ideas!
It is very important to me that everyone knows that I am always available. Please never hesitate to pick up the phone or drop an email if there is a question or concern. I havent been very involved in the Facebook environment, but Im trying and I promise to work harder at that.
Im so excited about our upcoming PPSNYS Workshop. I will be in Jane Connor-zisers class. There is always so much to learn and you cant find a better instructor than Jane. If you have already registered, Im looking forward to spending the week together. If you have not - dont wait any longer. It is the best investment you can make in your photographic education!
Im looking forward to a wonderful, rewarding year. Lets make it fabulous together!

Spring Means Conference Time!

It's almost here and everyone is getting very excited. Members of PPSNYS and PPANJ are preparing to meet and learn. And... you don't have to be a member of an organization to join in the fun!

The Photo North East Conference will be held April 6 - 9, 2013 at the Westchester Marriott Hotel. The speakers are excellent and the Trade Show will be full of wonderful new items for you to see in person. There is nothing like holding that camera in your hands and clicking the shutter before you purchase! The vendors will be on hand to answer your questions about equipment, albums, prints/enlargements and everything you need to run your photography business. There will be specials galore!

Make sure you visit the exhibit of images from the PPA Northeast Regional Competition which is taking place late in March. The awards for this competition will be given out on Monday, April 8th at the Conference. 

Added to all this are the fantastic parties that will be hosted during the Conference. This is an exciting event and you still have time to register and reserve your room at the hotel. All the details can be found on the CONFERENCE WEBSITE.  We hope to see you all there!
