Thank you for your dedication to the Missouri Professional Photographers Association and we look forward to working with you in the coming year.
A New Constitution!
In addition to electing a new panel of leaders, the membership also voted to adopt a new Constitution. The new verbiage was needed to reflect the changes in technology since the previous Constitution was first drafted. One example of a technology includes the fact that online virtual meetings have regularly replaced in-person meetings. Zoom, Microsoft Teams and similar common programs were not yet in existence when the previous Constitution was written. Given that the leaders on the MOPPA board live around the entire state of Missouri, this change has been a great benefit.
