Save the Date
Can you believe it has been almost four years since we gathered in person at a Summit event? Time goes too fast but the first in-person Summit since before Covid-19 arrived on the scene is just one year away!
Save the dates of May 4-6, 2023, to attend Summit in Tucson, Arizona, We are already busy at work preparing a jam-packed schedule of speakers, classes, events and socializing opportunities at a beautiful resort in southern Arizona. There will be many opportunities to get out into the Sonora Desert, with additional field events on May 3 and 7, in addition to the classroom learning. Tucson offers a wealth of photo locations for wildlife, landscape, astro and macro photographers.
