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

As Nebraska State Membership Director, I welcome you to participate in the wealth of PSA's activities and services! I'd love to hear from you! I'm here to offer personal assistance to all PSA individual and club members in Nebraska. And to entice the rest of you to join! You'll make new photo friendships along the way!

I'm a PSA Travel Aide for Nebraska. PSA Travel Aides are PSA members who offer the service of providing photo opportunity assistance to other PSA members who are visiting their state.

Photo opportunities abound in Nebraska, from the State Capitol Building in Lincoln to Chimney Rock at Scottsbluff or at the University of Nebraska football stadium. You won't want to miss the Sandhills area in the north and the migration stopover of the Sandhill Cranes!

See photos and stories from the monthly PSA Journal by reading the free sample issue. Visit PSA often at PSA's Facebook page.


PSA offers learning activities, photo competitions, special services, and the sharing aspects of photography. Feel free to contact me with questions about how to:

  • Take PSA online courses
  • Get a PSA Mentor
  • Get a PSA Member Gallery
  • Join an online study group
  • Enter photo competitions
  • Participate in international exhibitions and apply for Star Ratings

Look at all the amazing resources for PSA members at the My PSA web page. Plus, look within each of the Divisions' (special interest groups) for lists and calendars of continuous activities and services. 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. Visit the Benefits of PSA Club/Council Membership page. Participate as a club in the North Central Camera Club Council

If you have a suggestion for a new photo activity, contact me. A state photo contest, seminar, workshop, field trip, and such.

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 HonorsSociety 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.

    Welcome New Members!
