Eighteen attendees joined ASMP national executive director Tom Kennedy (formerly director of photography at National Geographic and multimedia director at the Washington Post) for a bull-session at Martha Lochert Photography on January 8th on goals for ASMP on the national level and how those decisions can positively impact our local chapter and the prosperity of our industry.

We were lucky enough to have him offer to meet with us while he was in town. He truly wants our input; as he stated “I am your servant, not your leader.” He wants ASMP to serve in aiding us to fully develop our creative persona, so feel free to contact him through http://www.asmp.org  with any ideas on how ASMP can better serve your needs.

Tom is passionate about  enlarging our membership pool, creating strategic alliances with other organizations to share resources in attaining our goals, mentoring photographers unfamiliar with best practices in the commercial end of the industry, creating student ambassadors, and making it easier for the local chapters to operate by moving ASMP forward through what he calls a “communication strategy reboot.”

ASMP is there to help and Tom wants us to “get out of the trees and see the forest” even if we are still recovering from the economic downturn and from the impact the consumer digital market has had upon us all.
