Social Dinners Information

APSCON has historically been a very social event where APS members got to meet each other and create everlasting friendships.  For many of the delegates, it has been a yearly expedition to enjoy their love for  photography and reunite with friends as they include APSCON into their yearly social itinerary.

Initially the Annual Awards dinner was the only organised social event, but with the ever growing need for members to enjoy a meal together, to share stories and good times, the introduction of the Social Dinner was an approriate addition. This event proved to be one of the most loved social events at ASPCON.

Last year, we tried something new, we have included a State Social Dinner with the view to include the presence of the State Photographic Federations into the APS world. It was a big sucess so we will do it again this year.
