NANPA Membership

MrFotoFoolMrFotoFool Posts: 289Member
Is anyone here a member of NANPA (North American Nature Photography Association)? I have known of them for many years but never bothered to join because I don't see the benefit (and a hundred bucks a year seems a bit pricey). I was recently reintroduced to them when I met a member who informed me their 2023 annual summit will be in my city of Tucson. Any real life experiences (specifically what you get for your hundred bucks) would be appreciated.

    I just found this thread on Backcountry Gallery asking the same question. While a couple people tout the benefits, the consensus seems to be it is not a good value for the money. Two posters say the benefit is having a "collective voice" yet neither one cites a specific example of an issue where that made a difference.

    Very true. Considering the lack of response to this thread, I assume no one here is a member (at least no one who is active here). I also posted this on SonyAlphaRumors (since I now use a Sony 200-600 for wildlife) and one person replied they enjoy the membership. However the main benefit for her was getting her work published in their member magazine, which I am sure is nice but still not enough to make me want to join.

    This leads me to a question that's puzzled me for a while. Where is everybody? Have they abandoned Nikon? Abandoned the board? All gotten their Z9s, gone on treks to the headwaters of the Nile, and been devoured by crocodiles?
