In Pursuit of Excellence
Whether the subject is vision, business practices, or new technologies, APA's goal is to mentor, motivate, educate, and inspire. On a local level, APA Chapters produce seminars, workshops, and other similar programs. On a national level, APA provides the following:
APA Business Manual - An authoritative, online guide to successful, professional photography.
Licensing, and The Value of Copyright - A primer on successful intellectual property and business practices, by Jeff Sedlik, past president of APA.
Each team meets on a regular basis, with the purpose of helping each other overcome obstacles to reaching goals. While personal goals will vary, the topics of interest can include:
Transitioning to digital
Business problems/ solutions
Other topics of interest
More details can be seen on the APA Success Teams page.
Each regional chapter produces monthly events to engage, educate and inspire the photographic community. Check your local chapter site for APA events in your area.
