Intermission and MemberShare – Immediately Following

After the main presentation, we will have a brief intermission and our members only free drawing – every section member present at the meeting will receive a free ticket for the drawing, with a chance to win prices and giveaways from our supporters.

MemberShare will occur after the intermission. Here’s a quick reminder of the guidelines:

  • send up to five photos via Dropbox file request
  • please send JPEG files, sRGB color space
  • you do not need to downsample your images (anything larger than 1920 x 1080 pixels is great)
  • prepare to speak no more than 10-20 seconds on each photo
  • please share your original photographs with us
  • Deadline for MemberShare submissions: Wednesday, September 18th, 9pm
  • nameplates: feel free to include a portrait format headshot with your photos!

To submit your images, simply click this button:


NOTE: Your photos are only shown during MemberShare and will be deleted afterwards. We do not keep copies. There is no need to watermark your photos. If you feel that you must add a logo or other overlay, please keep it small and unobtrusive.

Also, please do not wait until the very last minute to submit the photos you want to share. We need time to prepare the image presentation. When the MemberShare is especially popular, we may have to reduce the amount of images from each member. If that happens we will announce it before MemberShare begins, and hope for your understanding.

As always, our club meetings are open to the general public. Please invite your friends to join us for an informative and great evening!
