It was such a hit last time the NCPMI Board of Directors is happy to host our wonderful photographer and provide free professional headshots to 10 lucky members! We wouldn’t be able to do this without the partnership of our sponsor photographer, Lindsay Aikman, lindsayaikmanphoto.com. Lindsay is offering us a fantastic discount in order to allow us to offer this to our members. We know our members will be able to utilize headshots in a variety of ways, such as job searching or LinkedIn.
We will have registration for the headshots open through 07/21/17. Once registration is closed, a raffle will be held, to draw 10 winners from those who have registered. The winners will be notified by 07/24/17.
