APA Board members from around the country met this weekend in NYC in conjunction with Photo Expo. It was wonderful to meet board members whom I didn’t know & to put faces to those I had spoken with on the phone but never met in person. APA is a fantastic organization for photographers working in all areas. Having recently changed it’s name to reach beyond the traditional borders of advertising photography APA is working hard to find ways to support photographers & provide programming that is exciting and relevant at a time when our industry is going through major changes. From the economy to the changing face and technologies of photography it is a pretty exciting time. Scary – certainly, but change usually is and with it comes many opportunities for growth. APA has some great plans for the coming year and it is wonderful to be a part of this fantastic organization both as a board member and member of the APA|NY chapter.
