    There should be a "help wanted" section for photographers to post positions for assistants, editors, etc...

    Are we allowed to post items for sale on this forum?

    Being retired, I have a few things, most in excellent condition, that may help some of the younger photographers trying to get started in this rough economy.

    Both ideas are good and apply to everyone. 

    A help wanted section would be great for either people looking for work or people that are hiring.

    Also a place to list equipment for sale or if I am interested in picking up some used equipment.

    Thrilled with my membership so far (new in 2016). Would love if the forums were more publicized OR the use of the PPAM FB group was leveraged more.

    Help Wanted/Second Shooters Needed/For Sale/For Trade would all be great sections to build out on the Forums instead of having them as just posts.

    As a new member, the one thing that's driving me batty is the lack of an email contact list for core services at PPAM.

    All emails to adjust registration for courses bounce because the vpprograms box is either full or doesn't exist anymore. And there's no place to actually see who's in charge of this stuff in the program listings.

    Established members who have been around probably know folks firsthand, but my only intro to the group was convention and my head is still spinning. So I am at a loss who to contact to let folks know I cannot attend the April program.

    I tried the process it says to try and my email bounced from the vpprograms email. And there's no other suggested way to do this.

    We should either set up a registration system that allows folks to actually adjust their registration or get GOOD emails in place.

    **I went to twitter to see if I could post a note there, but last activity there was 2015. AND I fear that this note won't be viewed because last activity here - outside of my February notes here - was 2014.

    C'mon, let's get it together.

    After talking to quite a few people (New Members included) we thought that a "New Member" packet would be so helpful to them (and some of us).  This was my 3rd year and I can say from experience, you go up to the table that is not clearly marked at all (signage needs to be a huge part of the convention), you get registered and that's it.  No on is really told what to do, where to go.  It just seems that there is a huge disconnect from new and old members.  I also think there should be a class maybe a 2-3 hours at the Converense that describes everything there is to know about the conference, pair the new member up with someone who has been a member for 5 or more years so that they can eamil questions, bounce things off that person, etc.

    There is a lot more to it, but only so mycy space

    Stay Happy;
