KPAC Executive

The KPAC Executive are lead member-volunteers who keep the Photo Arts Club functioning with the assistance and input from members. Meetings, programs, photoshoots, field trips, and other events are planned. Dues are collected, documented and a ‘Group’ email list maintained on the Club website. Operating the website and posting upcoming events are two more tasks looked after. Bills are paid and minutes taken at Executive and Committee meetings. Your Showcase and Competition images are assembled and projected. Knowing Zoom protocols, functions and hosting skills is an additional expertise members of the executive have taken on.

Many skills are needed. Most have nothing to do with Photography. To offer assistance, input or discuss particular tasks contact any Executive member. Current executive members are pictured below with individual positions listed at the bottom of this page. Click here for the full Members Directory,
