AACC Covid-19 Policy

The AACC board of directors has decided to resume with in-person meetings. Given the current conditions in Washtenaw County, we have implemented the following safety measures for our meetings:

  1. Require attendees to show proof of vaccination against the COVID-19 virus
  2. Require attendees to wear face coverings while in attendance at the meetings
  3. Provide seating at the appropriate level of social distanceing during the meetings
These measures are based on the the CDC Guidance for fully vaccinated people in accordance with COVID-19 community level in Washtenaw County, which is currently classified as "Medium" by the CDC. The AACC board will continue to monitor the situation and is prepared to make any necessary adjustments as the risk level in our community changes.

Meeting Format (except in April)

Announcements:
Meetings begin with brief announcements of Club business and events of interest. New members are also welcomed and introduced at this time.  All meetings are open to the public and visitors are encouraged.

Program:
Various programs are planned throughout the year (see meeting schedule for details).  The programs are typically educational and may include a guest speaker. Programs are presented at the start of the meetings and typically last 30-40 minutes.

Display/Presentation of Member Photos:
For each meeting, a monthly theme or assignment is named with the goal of challenging members to create new and compelling images. On the first Tuesday meeting of each month, projected digital images are presented.  On the third Tuesday, printed images are displayed and presented. Submission guidelines are provided below.

The member presentations may include a mix of images from digital cameras, 35mm slides or even large format film. For projected images, digital processing and printing techniques are often discussed.

These presentations are in the spirit of sharing and learning. Discussion of images and composition is encouraged. Critique is meant to be helpful and constructive. The photos may be presented for a variety of purposes, including discussing new approaches or techniques, soliciting suggestions for improvement or sharing new locations.  

Annual Competition/April Meeting Format:
A competition for best projected images and prints of the year is held in April. At these meetings selected projected images (1st Tuesday) and prints (3rd Tuesday) are re-shown to the group by the members and voted upon by all members. Awards are made in four photographer categories (Novice, Intermediate, Advanced, and Gallery/Pro). Awards are presented at the annual AACC banquet.
