About the PSA Wisconsin Chapter

The Wisconsin Chapter received its Charter from PSA in 1992. Current membership is about 70 individual members of PSA who live in Wisconsin. We meet four times per year – November, January, March, and May. Often the May meeting is part of a weekend-long outing.

Chapter activities 

  • sponsorship of Milwaukee High Schools Youth Photography Showcase
  • participation in the PSA Chapters Showcase

At Chapter meetings, members bring their own digital images (BYOI) to show and we also have quality speakers to teach and motivate us to make better and more creative images.
