Dear SFBAPPA Members,

The organization is without a President or other key board members. If
no volunteers step forward SFBAPPA will be forced to dissolve. Also,
there will not be a 2015 contest unless people fill the empty board
member seats. Here is a list of board member seats that need to be
filled:

President
Treasurer
Social Media
Webmaster
Clip Contest Chairman

If you would like to volunteer for one of the positions please let me
know. Also, if you feel you would like to share the President’s
responsibilities or any of the other board member seats with a fellow
photojournalist friend or photojournalist co-worker, I’m certain that
can be worked out.

Sincerely,
Doug Duran
Still Contest Chairman
