Results are in for the KSCCC Member Survey!!

Thank you to all those KSCCC members who participated in our online survey. The overwhelming majority of our members are interested in continuing with our Club activities via online “virtual” meetings. Our Club members continue to be interested in learning and sharing ideas about photography and are especially interested in hearing speakers discuss interesting photographic topics, showcasing members’ photographs and learning about specific photographic tips and techniques.

Many members have told us that they are already familiar with the online meeting technology and either had no technical issues with it or were able to work through their problems themselves.  Most found that the audio and video of these online delivery products was good.

Stay tuned for more announcements on our website about our upcoming fall 2020 season.

Some of the key results from the survey are:
