In an unexpected honor, I was recently elected to join the Professional Photographers of America (PPA) Council. A nonprofit, international association with 28,000 members, PPA is ultimately governed by its members through such council representatives.
PPA Councilors are professional photographers who volunteer their time and service to guide and act as the voice for their state's PPA members. They are nominated and elected by peers and fellow PPA members. Duties include discussing and voting on changes to the bylaws and adopted procedures and the leadership of the association (via the election of the board of directors and the nominating committee). They also play a crucial role in sharing the PPA message to existing, new and prospective PPA members.
About PPA Professional Photographers of America (PPA) is the largest international nonprofit association created by professional photographers, for professional photographers. Almost as long-lived as photography itself, PPA’s roots date back to 1869. It assists more than 28,000 members through protection, education and resources for their continued success.

If you have ANY questions about this fantastic organization, I would be happy to chat with you. PPA is what got me where I am today, The national organization, coupled with our local PPA Affiliate (Professional Photographers Association of Northern Illinois) have been instrumental in my growth as a professional photographer.
