Membership comes with its benefits and I have outlined what those benefits are below.
Guests may attend two scheduled "Lounge" meetings at a fee of $10/meeting before being required to become a member, but they cannot take advantage of any of the membership perks and discounts. Guests should register upon arrival if you are not a member.
Benefits of Membership - All members of the “Photographer’s Lounge” will receive a "Membership Card" that will entitle them to discounts on the following products and services from the time you register to the end of the meeting season in April of the following year:

Through our relationships we have access to many international photographers. Each year we periodically bring in guests where you will have the opportunity to talk to them one on one. In 2012 we brought into Canada, published Author and professional Photographer Rick Sammon from New York. Scheduled to be running workshops and tours in 2013 and 2014 are Rick Sammon, Hal Schmitt, Tim Vollmer and Denise Ippolito… as the schedule permits, some of these speakers, and others yet to be announced, will swing by the Lounge and talk to our group.
