    Please let me be clear if PPA Mag happens to be reading this thread.

    Thank you! I am honored that you picked anything of mine to be worthy of placing in the magazine. My name and website are correct and I'm a happy camper.

    Jeff,
    It originated on the forum and was later picked up by the magazine on page 44 of the April PPA mag.

    The original: http://www.ppa.com/community/forums/...highlight=line

    I also found this:

    http://www.ppa.com/degrees/Merits.html

    Speaking Merits
    These merits can be earned through PPA and PPA Affiliates.

    PPA Level
    Instruct a class (or serve on a program panel) at Imaging USA.
    Host a Super Monday class (as an instructor).
    Instruct a PPA online class as a PPA webinar presenter.
    Publish an article in Professional Photographer magazine, a PPA publication, or the PPA.com website.

    Vance,
    Ok...so..I checked my merit report, and I do have two speaker merits for articles I have written. I also have service merits for some of the other things I have written or done for the mag. So....you might be able to get a speaker merit from the article.

    You definitely can get speaker merits for writing for PPA mag (I've got plenty). That being said, I am not sure that being quoted in PPA mag qualifies as writing an article. But it would seem to at least qualify as a service merit.

    Perhaps the article writing is listed in both service merit and speaking merit lists because it depends on the content of the article in question as to which merit it qualifies for. (Just a random guess on my part -not based on anything I've read).

    I believe that was changed a year or two ago. My first article was not a speaker merit, but others were.
