This year’s annual conference in Spokane from 9/23-29/2019 was attended by TPS members, Carla Gramlich, Judith Lilly, and Bob and Dorinda Wills.
Dorinda Wills Honored
TPS member Dorinda Wills was honored with a PSA Service Award for outstanding service to PSA for her work as TPS’ club rep, and PSA PID Interclub Competition, and Digital Dialogue Assistant Director for study groups.
This past year TPS finished in 20th position in Group A of the PSA PID Interclub Competition, the highest-rated of 5 groups (A-E) after moving up a group in each of the previous years. Our first year in Nature Interclub saw us place in the 9th position.
Other PSA Conference Information
Each of the various PSA divisions holds their business meeting, open to all conference attendees, during the conference. This is an excellent opportunity to learn how each division contributes to the Society as a whole.
At each conference, the Society’s extensive Print Collection is on exhibit.
World-renowned speakers present timely topics of interest followed by receptions. This year Charles Needle, Nevada Weir, Cole Thompson, and Lewis Kemper were the featured speakers. Many photography vendors have displays and demonstrate and answer questions about their products and services which help with purchasing decisions.
The conference ends with a formal banquet, recognizing top achievers in photography and honoring the many volunteers who make PSA successful.
