TWPC Members!

Wow!!

What a year 2022 has been!! So many get togethers, in person meetings (finally!), learning opportunities and new members joining our club! We now have 155 members!!

Let’s not forget our most successful Annual Contest and Exhibition! We had 291 photos entered, 91 winners, and a very full house at the Exhibition! Could we possibly top that next year?

Well, at our December 14th meeting at The Glade, we will hear your suggestions for the next year’s field trips, speakers, learning opportunities (workshops, photo walks, pop ups, etc.), annual contest categories and ideas, and other suggestions (did someone say “TWPC Picnic?)! This is our chance to continue inspire, educate and challenge ourselves to be better photographers….and definitely have fun doing it!

See y’all on the 14th!

Joan and your Leadership team

This is your opportunity to provide input and hear from committee leaders for fields trips, membership, annual contest, photowalks, workshops, mini-contests, etc.

This is your club and your participation is greatly appreciated and needed. There are new opportunities for YOU to help with different roles in the club.

So, please come to the meeting with your ideas and help us make 2023 a great year for The Woodlands Photography Club and your photography journey.

FIELD TRIPS

Field Trip Survey

Help us plan for 2023!

A new year of TWPC Field Trips will soon be upon us, and we’ve started the planning process by developing a list of general categories of Field Trips. Now we’d like to solicit members’ input via a survey. Once we get your input, we’ll prioritize the categories based on levels of interest, develop specific activities, and schedule the activities.

Please indicate your level of interest ( very interested, interested, or not interested ) for each category. At the end of the survey there will also be an opportunity for you to provide additional input regarding overnight Field Trips and/or additional categories to be considered.

https://form.jotform.com/213515440750145

Please complete the survey by Tuesday, January 3, 2023.

Many Thanks for your input

Claudia Smith

TWPC Field Trip Coordinator
