Dear ASMP Dallas members:
2013 was a busy year for our chapter. We held happy hour networking events, brought in some high-powered guest speakers, held a fun year-end holiday party, and offered an amazing educational seminar sponsored by the ASMP Foundation Grant. Sadly, we lost some wonderful North Texas photographers this last year, including two whom I personally knew and will surely miss. The chapter finally overhauled our outdated website and will be spending the beginning of this year getting new information uploaded. We also spent much of 2013 making the Dallas chapter Facebook page a hub for member interaction. Whether needing to find a last-minute assistant or plugging your gallery show, we had a lot of members posting, reading, and discussing photography!
We’ve received some wonderful help from Bolt Productions and InMotion Studios, we’ve strengthened ties with other area industry groups, and we’ve tried very hard to maximize your membership value. I think the Dallas chapter is very strong right now, but we can make it even better for 2014…with your help! Our board is always looking for help, and we occasionally have a need to fill official board positions with new faces. If you’d like to attend monthly board meetings, volunteer at events, or just share your ideas, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me what you’re thinking!
Let’s make 2014 a great year for professional photography! Please make our monthly events a priority, come network, and help make a difference in our industry. Check out our calendar for upcoming events, including our Town Hall meeting January 28.
