A message from Jason Groupp:

I’m literally bursting at the seams over our newest announcement! If you know me, you know how hard it is for me to keep news like this under wraps. In the last few years, I’ve had the opportunity to work on some great projects and add new class experiences to our conference program, and along the way I’ve been fortunate to team up with some amazing individuals.

I collaborated with many of our world-class instructors and print competition judges on ways to add even greater value to our conference and our membership program. We all agreed that there had to be something else we could do to help our members! After throwing around lots of ideas, I said, “Why not give it to ‘em for free?!” I honestly thought they’d look at me like I was nuts, but I guess they’re used to my crazy ideas by now, and we opened the discussion.

So, drumroll please… EVERY PHOTO+ member (WPPI & PhotoServe) will be entitled to a FREE Full Platform Pass at the 2016 WPPI Wedding and Portrait Conference + Expo in Las Vegas! That’s right! Five days of education FOR FREE for members only!

This took months of work, and I cannot thank our team enough who worked tirelessly to literally change the way we do things. It took months of combing through spreadsheets, going over numbers and planning to make this happen. With that said, I am elated to now officially offer this to all of our members, whether you’ve been a member for 30 years or decide to become a member today, as part of your membership you’ll each be entitled to join us in Las Vegas and have access to over 100 Platform classes for FREE!

We want to thank all of our members for their support, and we hope you make the decision to join us at WPPI next March to use your member benefit.
