Notes on the Above:

The General Meetings and DPC's are set. The details will be published about a month ahead.

The PPLAC Outings will also publish final details about a month ahead. Part of every PPLAC Outing is a low-key and fun Zoom meeting review of the attendee's images held a couple of weeks after the events.

For Special Events like one day PPLAC Workshops, we will publish the information well ahead of the event.

Because the logistics involved with multi day PPLAC Adventures where travel planning is part of the event, the details will also be made available well in advance. These events will also include a pre-trip orientation Zoom meeting and a post-trip review of images taken on the Safari. There also could be a workshop component included in the itinerary.

Note that PPLAC Workshops and Adventures advanced information will be announced on our "Events to Plan For!" page under the calendar tab above.

All announcements will appear on this website, in PPLAC email Blasts, the monthly PPLAC Newsletter and on PPLAC Social Media (Facebook and Meetup).

As always, if you have any questions, please contact us either individually or simply use the "Contact Us" tab above.
