There is no cost for you to participate. A professional portrait photographer will photograph you in several poses. You will then be able to view your proofs immediately through an instant video system and choose your picture for the composite. Additional portraits will also be made available to those wishing to purchase them, but there is no obligation to do so. If you are unable to sit for a photo, but still want to be included on the composite, you may send in your own photograph and pay a $30 fee to standardize the background to match the others in the composite.

What to Wear: For professional quality and best presentation, appropriate dress is suggested. We recommend a dark suit jacket and light-colored shirt.

Thank you for being a member of CABA and taking part in this great member benefit!
— Meade W. Mitchell CABA President
