Club & Council COMMUNICATION


Club/Council Discussion Forums

PSA has two forums which allow members of chapters, clubs, and councils to share information with each other and to obtain help in dealing with problems or concerns. The first, Camera Club Sparkle, is a group that enables members to discuss many issues. The second forum, the PhotoEditors Group, is designed for chapter, club, and council webmasters and newsletter editors. The discussions are very lively with a mutual sharing of ideas.

PSA Photo Editor's Group

The PSA PhotoEditor's Group is an on-line discussion and resource group formed primarily for chapter, club, and council newsletter editors and webmasters. The participants are dedicated to helping each other. Articles, which can be published in your organizations’ newsletters or web sites, are shared (new articles are always welcome). Information regarding PSA, with links to Word docs and PDFs, is provided. A major resource is the link section where members can view award winning newsletters and websites from all over the world. Many discussions evolve around problems common to all. The site is unique, and there is nothing else like it online.
