No Prob Bro ..

WPAS is planning as best as we can to do workshops, photo clinics .. overseas shoots ...etc ..

But for a new association, we need alot of support as we are non profitable & events needs money to run.

To date, the wpas committee had to dig into own pockets to get things running.

So bear with us .. Join us .. Help grow our memberships so that we can get more sponsors to part money with us.

If not, how else to keep the event rates low so all can partake.

Again, we would like to sincerely thank CS for ther continuous support & belief in WPAS :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:
