There are many components that make up the organizational structure of the FPP. These documents assist in governing the association and are made available here for the membership.
PPA Affiliation Family Tree
The FPP is just one branch of a professional hierarchy in the photographic industry. In the "trickle up" explanation, it would begin with your local guild, section or affiliate.
The FPP is a state organization which is an "affliliate" of both the regional (SEPPA) and national (PPA) organizations.
SEPPA (Southeastern Professional Photographers Association) is our regional association, and if you're a member of the FPP, you're also automatically a member of SEPPA. SEPPA is one of five "districts" of PPA and its membership is comprised of the state memberships of FL, GA, MS/AL, NC, SC, VA, TN, WV, MD, DE, and Washington, DC.
PPA (Professional Photographers of America) is our national organization and the largest photographic association in the world.
