Good job NPAC/CMG

I have just joined and see nothing but long term benefits from being involved.

At the recent NPAC Convention there was a show of hands poll on how many in attendance were staff vs. freelancers, and it was about 90% freelancers!  Actually the representation by staff photographers (especially GTA area) was pathetic, but that's another topic that needs to be addressed. 

So the Freelance Army certainly would benefit from more organization, education and representation, especially since we are the majority.  Do you see that trend changing?  Time for everyone in the industry to start working on fair, respectful deployment of the Freelancer.

Thanks again NPAC/GMG!
