In 2019, the Society of Camera Operators will be proudly marking its 40th Anniversary. As we reach this prestigious benchmark, the Board of Governors wants to ensure another 40 years of celebrating and strengthening the time honored craft of the camera operator.
As noted in the opening sentence of our mission statement, “The Society of Camera Operators (SOC) advances the art, craft, and creative contributions of the camera operator”. We are confident that you share the same mission, and ask that you seriously consider taking a more active role to that end by joining your fellow Camera Operators and/or inviting fellow colleagues, helping to insure the future of our great craft.
With the goal of doubling the size of the SOC in one year, it will take all camera operators in all regions, to join this call to action. For membership categories, qualifications, application and fees.
