Important Notice about CPA Meetings

Due to the COVID-19 virus, the CPA Board of Directors has suspended our in-person meetings until further notice. Affected meetings include our regular members meetings on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of each month, the quarterly Board of Directors meetings, and the CPA Members' Critique meeting that meets monthly on the 3rd Thursday at the Cary Arts Center.

Cary Photographic Artists will hold virtual meetings on the Zoom platform instead of in-person meetings. Look below and in the monthly CPA Newsletter for scheduled Zoom virtual meetings. CPA members will receive a CPA email with a link to each Zoom meeting and any password required for access.
