|Here's a "Howdy" and a big welcome from the Photographic Society of America and the State of Texas. If you are not already a member of PSA, we would sure like to have you join us. As you browse through the PSA website, you will see that we have a lot to offer for both clubs and individual photographers at all levels of experience.|
Our Gulf States Area Membership Director is Jim Mahoney, APSA, PPSA.
Associated with PSA, is the Gulf States Camera Club Council which encompasses clubs over a six state area. Their goal is to promote cooperation between camera clubs and support interest in all aspects of photography.
|There are currently twelve PSA associated camera clubs in Texas and approximately two hundred individual PSA members. If you are looking for a club in your area, I will be happy to provide contact information. Also, if you have questions about any aspect of PSA, please feel free to contact me. As your State Membership Director, I am always happy to talk about photography.|
|An important part of the PSA experience is recognizing the hundreds of volunteers that promote the Society and its programs through a wide range of efforts and services. Supervisors are doing their part by proposing those working for them for recognition awards. However, there are many who are equally as deserving but have not been identified.|
|It would be helpful for all PSA members to learn about the opportunities for recognition by reviewing the information on Awards found on the PSA website. The upper right area lists the awards that are available as a means of honoring members who make significant contributions.|
|It would be particularly useful to become familiar with the guidelines, instructions and proposal submission dates pertaining to PSA Honors, Society Recognition Awards and PSA Services Awards. This information will be useful as you do your part to help recognize colleagues who have contributed significantly to the Society. Please consider the PSA members around you and, when appropriate, submit proposals. Your Membership Director can provide you with assistance, when necessary.|
