June CoPVA meeting is our video swap meet

Meetup & CoPVA members,

Our June meeting is the video swat meet!

The video swap meet is our annual gathering of video professionals for the barter or sale of used video equipment. Do you have gear you no longer want or need? Bring those items to sell or trade.  Are you just starting up as a video professional?  This is a fantastic opportunity to check out gear and get set up cheaply.  We highly suggest you bring cash as some individuals may not take checks.

If you definitely know of gear you are bringing for sale drop me a line and I’ll post on our website.

If you are looking for a specific item drop me a line and I’ll add that to our website as well.

Your first meeting is free!  Single meeting cost is $20.  Ask us about annual membership rates when you come.
