CoPA Annual Member Meeting + FREE FILM : USA Panel
August 13 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Join us at NO Studios on August 13 at 6P for CoPA’s Annual Member meeting. We’ll welcome new members, vote on CoPA board appointments, hear from CoPA members who wish to be on the board, talk about upcoming events and chat about the general direction of the organization.
Due to professional and personal obligations, Mel Carranza, Kenneth Kornacki, Birgitta Lambert and Ryan Hanaman are not seeking re-election. The board presently consists of Vice President Erin Maddox, Treasurer Andy Holman, directors Guntis “Gunner” Lauzums, Phyllis Deicher-Ladwig, Shawn Spartz and President Pam Ferderbar. Phyllis and Shawn were appointed by the board, and need to be ratified at the annual member meeting if they are to become “official.”
We need a CoPA member to step up and act as Secretary. The position requires coordinating & attending a once-monthly Board meeting that usually precedes the regular CoPA meeting, and taking minutes. We try to meet at 4:30 on the second Tuesday of the month followed immediately by our general meeting. (Gunner has volunteered to handle compliance, so that’s one less responsibility for the Secretary to handle.)
We have additional committee seats that need filling, as well. I hope you’ll join us either on the board or on a committee so we can continue to grow CoPA into an organization that provides exciting programming and benefits to all our members.

Meet the FREE FILM : USA team:
Sean Andrew Jackson
Sean Andrew Jackson has been working to create a portrait series of hand-selected artists each of whom are unique contributors to society, and/or burgeoning artists on the rise. Using an intimate lo-fi monochromatic approach, his aim is to depict these characters as they are in daily life – animated and down-to-earth – behind the scenes and façade of social or commercial media.
Jackson is an American social-documentary photographer born in rural Virginia, now based in New York City focusing on exploring small groups of people. After studying journalism at the University of North Carolina, Jackson spent a period of time working in the newsroom at CNN before moving to Manhattan to apprentice for photographer and icon Bruce Weber.
He is deeply fascinated by the power of people and aims to pair his photography and film alongside his love for anthropological storytelling.
Free Alexander Snow Tripp
free is an interdisciplinary artist currently working in New York. his works in sculpture, performance, and sound are responses to the relationship of the interior and exterior and the transmissions of the imaginary into what is “probably” real. the works are often posed as a childish contradiction, wherein lies an inquiry into the human experience and the potential of each passing moment… or, “i am looking and feeling the world and time around me and i do not understand any of it. my work is a way of deciding which questions i don’t want to ask.”
Caroline is a comedian and writer living and performing in Brooklyn. She grew up in San Francisco and has performed stand up in Chicago, Berlin, the Bay Area and New York, as well as at comedy festivals like SF Sketchfest, the DC Comedy Festival, and Big Little Comedy Fest.
She’s a contributor at Reductress and has been published in the Pink Canoe and Little Old Lady Comedy. Catch her at her monthly shows Stacyat Rebecca’s Bar in Brooklyn and Jokes Engineeredat Caveat on the LES. Cheers!
neil hamamoto (b. 1993) is a conceptually focused artist best known for his idiosyncratic sculptures most commonly created from wood, metal and other prefabricated objects. his most recent works and projects recontextualize commercially manufactured objects to invoke the feeling of newness. by reviving the identity of outdated objects, hamamoto’s work offers a glimpse of the future present through a nostalgic lens and questions the worth of innovation.
before pursuing sculpture as a full time career, neil graduated from stanford university with a bs in mechanical engineering – product design and worked in the wood and metal shops for jeff koons. in addition to practicing as a artist, neil operates worthless studios and worthless foundation.
This is going to be a really exciting meeting. See you on the 13th!
