Barbara Rozavsky, HonNEC (MA) has been a member of the Greater Lynn Photographic Association (GLPA) since 1971. A past president of the organization, she served as the editor of GLPA’s monthly newsletter, The Filter, and is currently the membership chair. She has also served as the presentation director of the Greater Lynn International Exhibition for more than 25 years. GLPA recognized Barbara’s contribution to the association by bestowing the association’s Honorary Life Vice President status in 2010.
In addition to her involvement with GLPA, Barbara also served as chairman of the Yankee Photographic Society and as president of the New England Camera Club Council. She is currently a vice president of the Council and co-chair of the Photo Ops Committee at the July conference. Along with lecturing and judging at other area camera clubs, Barbara teaches basic photography classes at North Shore Community College, which she has done for more than 30 years. In recognition of her promotion of photography and her service to photographic organizations, Barbara was made a Master Member of the New England Camera Club Council in 1987 and was awarded her HonNEC in 2013.
On the non-photography side of things, after 32 years as an elementary school classroom teacher and school librarian in the Lynn Public Schools, Barbara retired early from public education to change careers. She worked as a manager of editorial services at a publishing services company in Boston until April 2019. Since then, she is thoroughly enjoying retirement.
