As the Republic of Ireland Membership Director, I look forward to helping members of our country take advantage of all of its available photographic opportunities. If you reside in the Republic of Ireland please feel free to contact me with your thoughts and suggestions about creating programs that will benefit our country's members or on any of the following items. 

  • To get an idea of the services PSA offers, check out the following sample resources offered to members: PSA Opportunities. Further information is available by clicking “Learn More” where indicated.
  • Information about  photographic Divisions.
  • Participate in International Exhibitions  and apply for Star Ratings leading to ROPA distinctions. QPSA is the first distinction requiring 3 stars (54 acceptances). There is vertually no waiting period between applications for different star levels or ROPA distinctions
  • New members with existing PSA acceptances can use 18 of these with a minimum of 6 titles from each division they have gained acceptances in prior to membership. For new members with additional acceptances, membership can be backdated for $25 per year to facilitate the use of such prior acceptances. 
  • For members and non-members (who intend to join PSA), it is essential to record the PSA division for each acceptance and whether color or mono in order to complete the online application for star ratings and ROPA distinctions.
  • Participate in a PSA Member Gallery
  • Publish an article in the PSA Journal

An important part of the PSA experience is awarding the hundreds of volunteers that help our organization. Review the information on Awards found on the PSA website. The upper right area lists the awards that are available. Make yourself aware of the guidelines, instructions and proposal submission dates for PSA Honors, Society Recognition Awards and PSA Service Awards.

I will be more than happy to provide you with further details on any of the above topics so please feel free to contact me.
