The Photographic Alliance of America (PAA) provides specific services for PSA-member clubs, and the members of those clubs who are individual PSA members, in the United States of America (USA).
These services are of two types:
1) those services leading to PSA members of the USA receiving photographic distinctions from the Federation Internationale de L’Art Photographique (FIAP), and
2) those services that lead to PSA-member clubs and councils of the USA as well as PSA chapters obtaining patronage from the Federation Internationale de L’Art Photographique for an international exhibition (salon) of photography that the club, council, or chapter will sponsor.
The services of PAA are benefits of PSA membership for PSA members and PSA-member clubs of the USA.
The Photographic Alliance of America member clubs, through their club representatives, elect the PAA Officers who are the PAA Executive Committee. The PAA executive committee elects the PAA FIAP Liaison Officer. The PAA manages its own activities and services, and conducts an annual general meeting (AGM) during the annual PSA conference.
