PPA Council: Nominations now accepted - PPA Today

PPA Council: Nominations now accepted


This spring, you can make a difference in PPA and the photographic profession: elect a representative to PPA's Council. These special volunteers are leaders, both as individuals assisting members and fellow photographers, and as a group making the decisions that guide the association. This kind of member involvement helps set us apart from other national photographic organizations.

PPA's Council is the legislative body of the association that guides and directs PPA programs and policies--very similar to the U.S. House of Representatives. Serving as a PPA Councilor is not an honorary position; it's an important responsibility. Councilors elect members to the Board of Directors, approve Degree recipients and changes to PPA's Charter and Bylaws, represent the concerns and desires of members, communicate programs and directions to members in their state, and more.

To be considered as a Councilor, you must be a Professional Active, Life, or Retired member of PPA. You must be nominated and agree to carry out the responsibilities of a Councilor if elected. Here are two ways members can be nominated: 

  • Five PPA members (who are Professional Active, Life, or Retired members of PPA) can nominate a qualified member. The nomination must be made in writing and include the signature of the five members making the nomination. 
  • PPA Affiliated organizations may nominate a qualified member. Again, the nomination must be in writing.

Nominations should be sent in writing (faxes are acceptable) to PPA Council Elections, 229 Peachtree St, NE, Suite 2200, Atlanta, GA 30303. (Fax 404-614-6400.) For questions, please contact the Membership Department.

Important Dates

  • PPA must receive nominations no later than May 1, 2009.
  • The election will take place between May 15 and June 15. 
  • Councilors take office on July 1, 2009, for the 2009 - 2012 Council.

Whether you run for election, consider who to nominate, or vote, your decisions will make a difference in PPA and this industry.
