The Stock Artists Alliance (SAA) announced today that it will merge with the Alliance of Visual Artists (AVA), an umbrella organization representing five photographic associations and some 45,000 professional photographers worldwide.
“We learned early on that photographers want to associate with people with like interests and business models,” adds Claire White, AVA’s Allied Associations manager. “This type of merger only works if each organization can keep its identity as it contributes to the combined success of the whole. SAA brings a unique perspective that was needed in our group. We are thrilled to welcome them into the fold.”
