General meetings, including a photo competition, are held September through May, followed by a final awards banquet in June where "best-of the-best" year end prizes are awarded. Tutorials meetings occur year round.

Salon meetings are on the first Monday of the month (with slight variances for holidays), starting promptly at 7:00pm and ending no later than 9:30pm. If competing in the salon, please arrive 15-30 minutes early to enter your image(s). Salons are our monthly competition.
