Photographic Society of America - Recognition of Service

By Rick Cloran, FPSA, EPSA, MNEC Chairman of PSA’s Honor Committee

It is with considerable pleasure that we recognize the election of three NECCC Board of Director Vice Presidents as Associates of the Photographic Society of America (PSA). The honors will be officially conferred on Antoinette Gombeda, HonNEC, Hazel Meredith, MNEC and Shiv Verma, MNEC at the PSA Conference in Portland, Maine this coming September. The Associateship is awarded for contributions to the advancement of photography that are primarily service oriented. These may include service to PSA or other photographic organizations or photography related service to the general community. While a high degree of photographic proficiency and achievement are often evident, personal achievement alone does not qualify a candidate for this honor.

While we cannot provide the full citations, Antoinette Gombeda, MNEC is being recognized for her years of supporting photography in New England, particularly through NECCC, and multiple chairmanships of the annual photo conference, the Connecticut Assoc. of Photographers (CAP) and her local club. Hazel Meredith, MNEC is being recognized for her service to PSA as well as to NECCC, CAP and her local club. Antoinette and Hazel are both members of the Greater Bridgeport (CT) Camera Club.
