  2. Send timely announcements to camera clubs to give latest information about camera chub field trips and other activities not covered by the bulletin.
  3. Prepare mailing lists of all Council camera clubs.
    List speakers and program material available to clubs from other clubs.
  4. List slides and print sets available for exchange among clubs.
  5. Prepare a list of critics and judges for camera clubs.
  6. Provide color slide and print judging services for club contests and exhibits.

HOW TO JOIN 4Cs

    Appoint a representative. Fill in an application blank and send it with annual dues to the Council's Secretary. The representative should be a person who can attend meetings. The representative should also have a long-term appointment if he is to receive the bulletin and other mail to avoid the delay in handling announcements and the confusion of changing mailing addresses.


WHAT TO DO AFTER JOINING 4Cs

    Special instructions and Council bulletins will be sent to your representative. Keep in touch with your representative and see that he reports Council news to your club, either directly or through your club bulletins.
    Send your representative or others to the regular meetings whenever possible. Others may not necessarily be appointed, but any member of your club may attend Council meetings and take part in planning and carrying on the activities. Your club will be entitled to only one vote, however, regardless of the number present.
