COPS Field Trip Waiver Form

We welcome and encourage visitors and photographers, as well as curious parties to join us at our meetings and presentations.

There are six (6) membership classifications which can be reviewed in the club handbook: Charter Member, Active Member, Joint Member, Associate Member, Student Member and Honorary Life Member.

The current annual dues are $45.00 for an individual, $75.00 for a joint membership, $25.00 for an associate membership and $20.00 for a student membership. Payments may be made to the membership chair at any of the meetings.

Application for membership, along with the prescribed dues, are forwarded to the Board of Trustees, and membership starts immediately upon the acceptance of the application by the Board of Trustees.

Members enjoy digital presentations, guest speakers, workshops, competitions, field trips, and interclub competitions, and the “perks” of one of the oldest and best attended clubs in Connecticut.

An annual banquet is held during which the annual service award is presented to a member for outstanding service to the club.

Great photography work is recognized during the annual banquet with print and digital image awards.
