Athens, GA - As we approach the celebration of the 75th anniversary of the founding of the National Press Photographers Association, President Katie Schoolov has created a special task force to oversee plans to mark this important milestone.
The 75th Anniversary Task Force committee members include Katherine Gilyard, Ross Taylor, C. Thomas Hardin, Mickey Osterreicher and past presidents Andrew Stanfill, Michael P. King, Melissa Lyttle, Mark Dolan and Mike Borland.
The task force has begun working on a new NPPA logo, which will make its first appearance in a special design incorporating the 75th anniversary. The task force is also working on incorporating this logo into a limited edition commemorative pin, which we're hoping to sell for a short period of time later this year.
While we have a deep desire to gather to celebrate this momentous occasion, safety dictates that we hold off for now. Plans are being considered for a potential national celebration next year, perhaps around the 75th anniversary of NPPA's incorporation on May 22, 1947.
We’ll keep you updated on the commemorative pin and other events on NPPA's Twitter account and on NPPA.org.
