Other Education Opportunities

CAPA Bonus Speakers Series

As you may remember from last year, besides our own excellent lineup of education evening speakers, we were also able to offer members the chance to join in a special series of educational presentations featuring some excellent speakers and put together by CAPA.

We are thrilled that this year we are again able to offer this popular series.

The speakers are normally beyond the budget of most individual photo clubs, however as we are joining in with other BC and Yukon clubs, we are able to combine resources. This series will partially be funded by CAPA and the remainder of the cost will be shared by participating clubs.

There is no charge to members as the club will be covering the cost of this CAPA series, however, you will need to pre-register for this presentation

As we receive other opportunities they will posted on this page.
