RAPC Mission Vision & Values

Mission

A volunteer-driven club providing its members opportunities to increase their knowledge and to apply this knowledge to improve their skills and achieve their photographic goals and objectives.

Vision

To provide our members with a full range of programs and services that serve their needs regardless of their area of photographic interest or their current capabilities.

Values

Our club values:

  • gaining and sharing knowledge and experience across all aspects of photography
  • members who are involved and willing to help other members and the club
  • having fun through exploring and sharing photographic opportunities with other members


The RAPC Gallery

The new RA Gallery exhibition with the theme of Small Wonders of Nature is ready for viewing.  (At the entrance by Clark Hall).

Please drop by to see it for yourself.  It is already receiving compliments from staff and visitors!!

The RAPC Needs You!

Please consider volunteering!  We have a great Club and to continue offering the wide variety of Special Interest Groups, Services, Competitions, etc, your help would be greatly appreciated.  And the added bonus is that by volunteering, you will truly feel like it is your Club! 

Have a look at the Volunteer list of the current status of the Leaders and other Volunteers for the upcoming 2023-24 season, which begins at the end of May. Everything that happens in our Club is done by the members who volunteer. Positions in red need to be filled, especially those three vacant Council Member positions! Being a Team Leader does not mean you have to do all the work yourself. It means you will be representing your team on Council. You can see, from the rest of the list, that there other volunteers willing to help.

Of course, for the Club to continue to function and rebuild with in-person meetings, there are also many other support tasks to be doneā€¦ Please look at the list and see where you will be able to help.

Please contact any of the Council Members or Leaders if you would like to play a role in our club.

Presenters should arrive at the meeting venue by 7:15 at the very latest so there is time to load the images onto the club computer before the start of the evening.
