We're very happy that you have decided to join our club.

You can join the club as either a Non-Competing or Competing Member. The dues are the same for either - $39 for twelve (12) months.

Each enjoys all the benefits of membership - programs, local photo outings, field trips, full access to online resources, and fellowship. Competing Members can also enter monthly and special photo contests.



Please follow these steps to become a member of the Plano Photography Club:

  1. Click the Login button in the top right corner of this page.

  2. Scroll down past the login section to get to the Create an Account section.

  3. Read the instructions under Create an Account.

    Unless you are creating an account to only be a judge, click the Membership Information and Membership Request button.

  4. This takes you to the Organization Membership page.

    At the bottom of that page, the website has a block of text and some buttons.

    One button is labelled Create a new User Account. The other is labelled Video: How to Create an Account. That video demonstrates the rest of the process.

  5. Choose Create a new User Account. Fill in the required fields.

    NOTE: If you are a member of another club hosted by Visual Pursuits (e.g., Dallas Camera Club or Robson Ranch Photo Club) or if you have ever judged a contest for one of these clubs, you already have an account. However, you join each club separately. Use the same user name and password when creating your PPC user account.

  6. When you are finished creating your account, log on to the website using the login and password you just created. Go to the MY ACCOUNT tab and then


  7. The membership team will get your request, confirm your payment and will have to set one flag in your profile. You will be notified when this completed.

That's it! Welcome to the club - we look forward to getting to know you. See you at the next club meeting!
