This Handbook is the primary resource for new and existing members to learn about and
review many aspects of the Club. We have a long and proud history, since 1950,
serving the Silver Spring photographic community with camaraderie, education and skill
improvement. We are happy to have you as members continuing this tradition.

As this Handbook will explain, we offer a great deal of rewards as a benefit of
membership. As usual we’ll have a great lineup of interesting speakers and well
qualified competition judges. New this year we will have Seminar Night that will offer
education, discussion of photographic topics and hands on workshops. Check the
schedule each month to see what’s on the program! Also new we will have monthly
meetings of the Board of Directors. These meetings are a great chance for all members
to see the behind the scenes operations and have a voice in the direction of the Club.

Connecting with the Club and its members is easier than ever before. We have active
Facebook and Twitter accounts, you can find us on Meetup and we have a Google
group forum and a Flickr page to share your best images. Of course the best way to
connect is to attend one of our meetings! And don’t forget we meet monthly for a field
trip to try out all the new things you learn at the meetings.

This Handbook should answer many of your questions and serve as a resource
throughout the year.
