Wisconsin Professional Photographers Association is one of the oldest Wisconsin associations out there, the 118th Annual convention is coming up over the next 4 days in Green Bay, WI! I am proud to serve on the board of directors for the past 12 years and my position for the last 10 years has been the Fellowship Chair. I keep track of those who contribute their time and talent to the association through print competitions, volunteering on the board of directors and helping out at the conventions. I get the privilege of tracking and awarding the Associate Fellowship degree and Full Fellowship degree each year, along with bars to follow after they receive their degree to encourage them to keep helping. The greatest friendships have been made over Fellowship for me. I have to admit, without Fellowship, nothing exists. You get what you put into it and in my mind you only start to learn when you get involved and help others. That is, after all, the meaning of fellowship.
