Links and Resources

S.N.A.P. Resources:

S.N.A.P. Yahoo Group
Everyone who wishes to be an active part of the S.N.A.P. group should be a member of the “SNAP Yahoo Group”. When you join the Yahoo Group, you decide at what email address you wish to receive the updates and messages, and you can choose to receive these emails individually (as most do) or as a digest.

This is the primary means of email communication from the President and Board, to the membership.Any information you get from the SNAP Yahoo Group emails will also be available on the SNAP website here.

We do not have many postings to the group throughout the month (and thus not a lot of email), and the group membership is moderated and members must be approved.

S.N.A.P. Group on Flickr
The S.N.A.P. Flickr site is a recommended place for members to upload any photos from their body of work that they wish to show to other members of the group. The group is moderated, and membership must be approved. Your own individual account is required, as this is just a “Group”, that links all the members Flickr sites in one place for easy viewing.

S.N.A.P. page on Facebook
Our obligatory social networking page for the group. Used by S.N.A.P. for public relations and promotion of upcoming events and shows. This site is mostly un-moderated and not a primary place for member’s photos or information. Remember, posting and status updates on this site go to everyone on Facebook, not every member of S.N.A.P.

S.N.A.P. page on LinkedIn
A business to business networking site. You may add S.N.A.P to your network if you wish here.
