The board of directors for the National Press Photographers Association will hold its winter meeting on Saturday, January 22, 2021, via Zoom.
If you lead or chair any of the following groups:
- Committees: Executive Board; Safety and Security; Advocacy; Business Practices; Education; Ethics; Honors & Awards; Technology Task Force; Finance; Communications Committee; Fundraising Ad-Hoc; 75th Anniversary Task Force; Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee

Each of you is requested to submit a written report to be included with the board material. If you choose to provide a report, it can be a concise synopsis of your 2021 activities and/or a look ahead to your 2022 activities or plans. The deadline for your reports is Friday, January 7, by the end of the business day.
If you submit a report, please be as brief as possible. Unless you indicate that board action is required, your report will be included with others in the Consent Agenda portion of the meeting - meaning that they will be received and approved as a group without discussion.
Any NPPA member in good standing, as well as committee chairs and any volunteers, may also submit an agenda item to be discussed by the board, or submit a resolution proposal to be considered. Please note what the action is and any resource requirements (financial, technological, human, etc.) that will be needed and/or considered. Also, let me know if you wish or need to be patched into the meeting at the appropriate time to personally present your agenda item(s) to the directors.
Members may also send me their nominations for the national offices of president, vice president and secretary until the time of the election on Saturday, January 22, 2021.
Thank you for all you do for NPPA and the members. You are the NPPA.
