MEMBER’S HANDBOOK for the CALGARY CAMERA CLUB


MEMBERSHIP: (Membership Application and Paypal Button)
The CCC provides an application on line, this is the preferred method as this will avoid lineups at the first meeting.
At the first meeting you attend in the new club year, please see the Membership Volunteers to complete your membership for the current year and pick up your new membership card.
Each person will be given a name tag upon completion of membership. The tags will be sorted alphabetically and located near the door. At each function, please wear your name tag and then return it to its proper location at the end of each function.
A membership number is assigned to each member. As long as a person is a member of the club, he/she will always have the same number. This allows for the continuation of competition information for consecutive years.
Application forms and waivers need to be completed for each year of membership.

CCC COMPETITION INFORMATION FOR MEMBERS:
Participation in club competitions is voluntary and only one of the opportunities provided to members to learn photographic skills. Three photos can be submitted per competition. As CCC is a digital camera club all submissions as well as voting, are done online via the club website and critiquing of photos are done on competition evenings at the club.
