2017 PPOC Board of Directors

Your board of directors are volunteers who help make the events, meetings, and background operations of PPOC happen as smoothly as possible. We are business owners, photographers and most of all people with a huge desire to help our members, friends and colleagues. Each of us joined the board for various reasons, but we are all very passionate about PPOC and are constantly learning better ways to conduct business both for PPOC and for ourselves. If you would like to learn how to help out, drop a note to president@ppoc.org

When you see us at an event, please come up to us and say HI, we want to meet each and every one of our members!! You spend your time and money to be part of this organization and we want to know who you are!!

    Rick Valasek . - President

   Rick Valasek@gmail.com

    Have returned to my "first love" - photography. Since I've expanded my location studio business, I've received so much interest in my     Commercial assignments that I've decided to devote 110% of my business time to the business that I started in the mid 70's.

Trudy Brown - 1st Vice President 

Trudy is the girl who gets the word out! She puts together our news letters and flyers to keep everybody in the know!! She also makes sure the President doesn't send any notes out, without proofing them first!!

  John Anasas - 2nd Vice President and Image Comp Director

  Even though John is new to the Board he brings a great deal of experience. John has assisted in the management of the
  PPC Image Comp this year which was a tremendous success.

Jack Ochoa - Treasurer


I joined the board so I could be more involved with the organization to be able to learn from the members.
I work full time as an electrical contractor and part time as a photographer. I would like to increase my work as a photographer and eventually live in Hawaii. I hope to improve my skills as a photographer by being a PPOC member.
