  Keep up to date with what the APCS is doing, read about items of interest from around the world, and of course items of local interest. From time to time it also includes lists of items for sale. The APCS newsletter is for you, and anyone can read it from this website.

The APCS produces newsletters as they are needed to keep members up to date. They are normally sent a week before each APCS event and include details of the event, management items relating to the APCS, items of note from around the world that are considered to be of interest to members, trade releases relating to photography, lists of items for sale etc and advertisements of services to members.

The email that is sent out is only a brief summary of the whole newsletter and includes a hot link to the actual newsletter which is stored as a PDF file on the APCS webpage. The newsletters have "smart addressing" meaning that the current newsletter can always be seen from this page by clicking here. Note that web browsers can store old copies so when you expect a new newsletter, please click on your "refresh" button.

In a normal year there are 10 main events and so there are 10 newsletters. When there are minor edits to the newsletter, a refresh of the webpage will show the updated version. If the edit is a major matter, a new email is sent out highlighting the change.

Of course, for members to get the email, we have to know your email address. If you are missing out on this service, please send an email to the Webmaster indicating your preferred address. A few members do not have email addresses registered with the Society. A summary of key issues that are normally in the electronic newsletters is sent by surface mail with copies of the Magazing "Back Focus" - usually 4 times a year.

The electronic version of the newsletter is also sent to eMembers. This is a class of membership that will keep you up to date with the activities of the APCS but does not have some of the features of full membership. There is no cost associated with eMembers but of course we have to have your email address to send you those messages. Register for eMembership by sending an email to the Webmaster click here including your name and your preferred email address. If you like what you see, you can become a full members, entitling you to receive the magazine Back Focus, to attend members-only events, vote at meetings etc. Download the form from the Membership page, pay the membership fee and follow the instructions on that page.
