NAPfS Membership

Dues are $24 per year for a full, competing member.

Anyone may attend up to three club meetings free of charge. Full, competing member guests are always welcome.

Only full, competing members can participate in monthly competitions and other club sponsored activities, such as portfolio projects or live critiques.

Full, competing member dues help fund club activities. The more members we have, the more we can do together!

Lifetime members are also full, competing members.

A person who signs up at this website but does not pay and is not a lifetime member becomes an "associate member" and is not considered a full, competing member.  Associate members have a very limited membership period which is not renewable.

Benefits of becoming a full, competing NAPfS member:

  • Front row seat to interesting photography speaker talks
  • Participate in hands-on workshops to improve your skills
  • Make new like-minded friends from all walks of life
  • Be part of our thriving and generous Facebook community
  • Enter photos in monthly digital and print competitions
