Message from New Director of Competitions – Sheldon Boles

Virginia Stranaghan has done a remarkable job as our past Director of Competitions.  As I reviewed the box of documents she passed onto me, I am amazed at the volume of work associated to this position.

With the introduction of our new website later this fall, we will see many changes and improvement which has been suggested by CAPA members and camera club members.

As we progress through these changes, I look forward to receiving your suggestions and ideas on how we can improve and streamline our competition processes.  Please email me at competitions@capacanada.ca.
