Board of Trustees
Austin Center for Photography is no small undertaking. The following people make up the present Board of Trustees.
The ACP board is a “working” board. Each person brings a unique talent or skill, and together we are building something new and exciting for Austin.
Therefore, the board is dynamic and additional members will be added as time goes on. If you’d like to be considered for the board, contact us. We are looking for individuals who share our vision and who can share their time and know-how to help ACP grow.
