ASPP Board Meets


The national board of the American Society of Picture Professionals recently met in New York City for a retreat hosted by national president Eileen Flanagan at the Corbis offices. The goals for the meeting were to determine who ASPP is, where it is going and how it intends to get there. By the end of the day, the board had drawn up an outline for many elements of the organization, including the magazine, the web site, membership, chapter programs and the educational program.

Along with the motto "Building Community among Image Professionals," the board worked on a vision statement that better reflected who the group has become over the years and where it sees itself in the industry: "We are a community of image experts committed to sharing our experience and knowledge throughout the industry. We provide professional networking and educational opportunities. If you create, edit, research, license, manage or publish pictures, ASPP is the place for you. Join us."
