Professional Photographers of America (PPA) has announced the results of their 2021 Council elections. The new Councilors officially took office on July 1. These volunteers act as a voice for members in their state and help set policy by discussing and voting on changes to PPA by-laws, procedures, and leadership. They are also vital in helping PPA get important messaging out to its more than 31,000 members.
PPA is truly a member-owned organization. PPA members govern the organization through their representatives in the PPA Council, which consists of:
Elections are held every 3 years (ballots are sent and tabulated electronically) beginning in the spring. All PPA Professional Active, Additional Active, Canadian, Life and Retired members have the right to vote. PPA is a member-supported and member-driven organization, and its members run PPA, in great part, through their elected representatives.
Once elected, PPA council members represent all PPA members in their respective states. A Councilor's duties include attending state and local association meetings, encouraging membership in PPA, and maintaining a constant connection between the nonprofit’s members and its headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia. Councilors must attend one annual meeting at Imaging USA, the organization’s signature photography trade show and convention.
