CNPA Annual Meeting 2020

Date & Time: Thursday, March 5, 2020 – Sunday, March 8, 2020

Welcome to the 2020 CNPA Annual Meeting in our host city of Spartanburg, South Carolina. No matter where your photographic interests may lie, our fabulous lineup of speakers is sure to Educate, Inspire, and Entertain with the breadth and depth of their photographic knowledge and experience. The pre-meeting Technical Workshops that we introduced three years ago have proved to be very popular and we are excited to present another series of practical, hands-on workshops this year.

And what about challenging yourself to take your photography to the next level? You may be interested in producing fine art images or even using remote triggered flash to capture animal behavior. Do you have the tools you need? This is what the CNPA Annual Meeting is all about. For three days in March, you will have the opportunity to meet world class photographers, hear their stories and learn how they challenge themselves. You will have the opportunity to network and socialize with other CNPA members, meet up with old friends and make new ones. The vendor tradeshow is always popular if you are looking to add to your collection of camera equipment, or want to learn more about travel destinations and workshops. Sell or exchange your unwanted equipment at the Swap Shop. Additionally, a representative from Used Photo Pro will be present to give appraisals and offer on the spot payment for used equipment.

This year we are excited to announce a new way to interact with members and vendors as the “Sip and Click” event Friday night. This will be an event where members, their families, select local camera clubs/photographers and vendors can interact and discuss their latest products, workshops, travel opportunities etc. This event will include a beverage for members, light snacks and a cash bar. This will replace the Vendors’ Showcase.

Whatever your interests, there is something for you at the 2020 CNPA Annual Meeting. To learn more about our Speakers, Trade Show, Swap Shop, and much more, click on any of the other tabs, or download the Program Booklet.
