We have two Facebook Pages — Public and Members Only. Since we don’t currently meet in person, the Members Only page is the best way for our club to stay in touch, interact, and share photos, It’s an active page, and you can post your photos and ask for advice, feedback, or a critique. (If you’re a new member, you’ll need to request access to the group.)
If you have any news or stories you’d like to have included in the newsletter, please send them to email@example.com.
If you have a Facebook account, you may join our club’s Closed Group page and keep up with current member news as well as postings of Calls for Entry that you may wish to enter, or share other important or interesting information with our group. Go to HCPC Members. You must be a paid member to post and use this account. It is the easiest and best way to keep current on photo opps and member news. Charlie Kreitler is the administrator of this page – thank you Charlie!
