‚úČ John F. Larson, Jr., FPSA, MPSA·




Welcome to the Iowa State Membership home page. Thank you for visiting with us. Please come again!

As the Iowa State Membership Director, I encourage you to become an active PSA member!

I'm here to offer personal assistance to all PSA individual and club members in Iowa. And to entice the rest of  you to join! Choose learning activities, photo competitions, or the amazing sharing aspects. You'll make new photo friendships along the way!

Here's a free issue of the February 2013 PSA Journal, so you can see how great our photo articles are!

Visit PSA often at PSA's Facebook page.

If YOUR camera club isn't benefiting from PSA's resources for managing a great photo club, contact me for a review of our many services and activities. See a list of Benefits of Club/Council Membership.

  • Get your images evaluated

PSA Values its Volunteers

An important part of the PSA experience is recognizing the hundreds of volunteers that promote the Society and its programs. Directors and chairs propose those working for them for recognition awards. However, there are many who are equally as deserving but have not been identified. Please consider proposing a worthy member for PSA Honors, Society Recognition Awards and PSA Services Awards. Your Membership Director can provide you with assistance, when necessary.
