    Business Meeting and Officer Elections

    This is the annual club business meeting and officer elections for 2020.  If you are willing to serve or have a nomination for one or more club officers please let our President Mike Shaefer (right click to copy email address) know. APS functions well when many members are willing to step up and help.  We also need energetic volunteers for the club's non-elected positions such as Salon Chair, and PSA competition coordinator.

    We will also discuss/brainstorm ideas for 2019 themes and other activities such as programs, field trips/shoots and exhibitions.  Your creative input is highly valued!
