President’s Message September 2017
If you were not able to make it to the CCC2017 Conference in Ottawa, you missed a great event. An opportunity to be with 200+ other photo enthusiasts, catch up with old friends and meet new people from across Canada & US. It’s an awesome experience to be with a large group that all has the same passion for the photographic arts. A big Thanks to the volunteer’s from the RA Photo Club & CAPA that organized the conference. I hope you mark your calendars for July 2019 for the next CAPA conference in Calgary.
I’m Rod Trider, the new CAPA President, for those that do not know me I am a Photographic based artist and master digital printer. I have been the CAPA Ontario Zone Director & CAPA V-P, involved on the boards of my local camera club and a regional organization in Ontario. I teach our internationally recognized Judges training course and am an international photographic competition judge.
I look forward to working with what I consider a great group of people on the board to promote CAPA and continue to bring new services and benefits to our fellow members & associate clubs. Our new web site is rolling with even more new features coming this fall. Please make sure you have logged in to update your profile.
We look forward to expanding our national reach and will soon be setting out recommendations for standards on Club Projectors, On-line Judging and the use of Trained Judges for competitions to provide better comments & standardized scoring.
If you like that CAPA promotes the photographic arts, if you like the Canadian Camera Magazine, our Judging course and other benefits, invite a friend to join.
Remember, if you get involved, you get more out of it!
Rod Trider, FCAPA
