I guess my next step is to accumulate speaking merits - "13 for lectures on approved programs or for positions as instructor or lecturer at approved PPA affiliate schools".

How do I go about doing this? I've been developing a few courses - a few I've taught at the "night school" level in my former affiliate. How do I get this out to a larger group and/or receive merits for them.

The courses include:

1. Maternity Photography
2. Plus Size Photography
3. Home/Work balance - the reality of maintaing your photographic life without lose your wife (or husband).

In addition, I've been helping a few fellow photographers develop their business plans.

How do I transform these into speaking merits?
Thanks in advance!
