A big thank you to outgoing AAJA Sacramento Board Member Ryan Yamamoto. He has been a critical part of the chapter’s annual Photo Showcases, serving as the Co-Photo Coordinator. We truly appreciate his dedication to the chapter as a board member for the past 2 years. Before that, he was a board member and even served a brief stint as Chapter President. Together, he and Suzanne have been huge supporters of AAJA Sacramento personally and professionally. We thank them for opening their home and their hearts to our cause.
