NEW ENGLAND CAMERA CLUB OPPORTUNITIES

NEW ENGLAND CAMERA CLUB OPPORTUNITIES
Have you ever been to the NECCC annual conference at the University of Mass. in Amherst?  If not, every year the Council offers a courtesy enrollment for the Conference registration cost to one person from each camera club member.  This year the conference is July 14, 15, and 16.  This is an exciting opportunity to enhance and expand your knowledge of all kinds of photography - digital, video, prints.  There are various levels of workshops from beginner to advanced. 
Many people from our club attend each year and generally get together for a dinner off campus on Saturday night. 

The deadline to apply is March 1st.  If you are interested please contact Ann Yost MNEC at ayost4@aol.com  If more than one person expresses interest, we draw the winner's name from a hat so to speak. 
The NECCC also offers a full scholarship to attend the Conference toa few high school students .  The deadline for this opportunity is March 1st
Also NECCC has scholarships for college students who are studying photography.  Our club has had one student recently who received this scholarship.  Deadline is March 15. 
Finally, NECCC recognizes those people who have gone above and beyond in their contribution to the world of photography.  See the NECCC web page neccc.org  for details of the criteria for nomination.  Deadline is March 1st.
