From 2006 to 2012, members who took pictures at AAPA conventions uploaded them to Picasa albums. Sometime in the intervening years, Google did away with Picasa and all of the links to the photo albums became invalid. Recently the albums were re-discovered, now available under Google Photos. If you would like to take another look at the albums, here are their new locations:
You can read entries made at these conventions on the "AAPA Information" blog, found at
There are also albums for the 2008 Oregon Delegation Picnic and the 2016 A. J. Conference (Madison, Wisconsin).
Amateur journalism is a unique activity. Amateur journalists publish journals on paper & online & come from many perspectives: from deluxe letterpress printed journals, to Xeroxed newsletters, to artistically designed cards and ephemera. We embrace the spirit of being amateurs – loving what we do for pure joy and not financial gain – while creating top quality journals, zines, and homemade publications.
