Louisiana State
Director (SMD)

‚úČ Melissa Cramer Sonnen· 

Bonjour, Mes Amis,

Louisiana, where "les bon temps rouler," welcomes you to a venue that offers a taste of the state's best photographic "gumbo" and the country's finest photographic organization. Here through the Photographic Society of America, Louisiana shutterbugs can connect with thousands of members across the globe. PSA invites you to join its esteemed association and then to reap the benefits of its extensive resources. As you browse through the PSA website, you will see that this fellowship offers opportunities for both clubs and individual photographers at all levels of experience.

Currently, Louisiana boasts Four PSA-associated camera clubs and approximately 38 individual PSA members. Should you want to join a club in your area, I will be happy to provide contact information. Furthermore, if you have questions about any aspect of PSA, please feel free to contact me. As your State Membership Director, I am always happy to talk about photography! -- Eligio Herrera

PSA Values its Volunteers

An important part of the PSA experience is recognizing the hundreds of volunteers that promote the Society and its programs through a wide range of efforts and services. Supervisors are doing their part by proposing those working for them for recognition awards. However, there are many who are equally as deserving but have not been identified.

It would be helpful for all PSA members to learn about the opportunities for recognition by reviewing the information on Awards found on the PSA website. The upper right area lists the awards that are available as a means of honoring members who make significant contributions.

It would be particularly useful to become familiar with the guidelines, instructions and proposal submission dates pertaining to PSA Honors, Society Recognition Awards and PSA Services Awards. This information will be useful as you do your part to help recognize colleagues who have contributed significantly to the Society. Please consider the PSA members around you and, when appropriate, submit proposals. Your Membership Director can provide you with assistance, when necessary.
