As an all-volunteer organization, CPS relies on the time and talents of our members to support our amazing programs.

By volunteering, you can help continue our long tradition of “photographers helping photographers”!

Our open volunteer roles are listed below. If you find a role that suits your availability and skills, we’d love to hear from you!

Co-Chairs of Competition Committee

Category: Programs

Description: Help coordinate and run the CPS competition season as co-chair. Duties include procuring judges for the competitions and making sure each competition runs smoothly. There are individual chairs for each of the competition categories who run most of the themed competitions, so the job of co-chair is to oversee the whole operation. We will teach you all you need to know.

Requirements: Good organizational skills.

Phone Photography Instructors

Category: School

Description: To start our Phone Photography school, we will need three members well versed in smartphone photography who would be willing to teach in a new Phone Photography School at CPS. You would help design the course and run it two to three times a year. We will help you in the organization and setup.

Requirements: Knowledge of phone photography.

Other Volunteer Opportunities


If you are proficient in any area of photography – such as Photoshop, Lightroom, portraiture and lighting, phone photography, flash photography, etc. – consider teaching! The time commitment can be tailored to your availability and helping others learn is highly rewarding!


If you have an area of special interest or special skill that you are interested in sharing with the club, give a one evening lecture. It could be on a photographic technique, your travels or a type of photography you have an interest and skill in.

Join a Committee

CPS has numerous committees that help keep the club running and are always looking for volunteers. There is a current position open for the Chair of the Nature Competition who oversees only the nature competition of which there are three each competition season. Other committees that could use help are the Field Trip Committee and the Hospitality Committee.
