and How to Become a Member
The Long Island Videographers Association (LIVA) was founded in 1988 by James F. Kennedy who also became LIVA's first President and remained so up until 1997. LIVA was created so that local wedding videographers could come together to learn about new technologies and techniques, while networking with other dedicated professionals. Today, we are one of the largest and most respected local video associations with members coming from all across Long Island, the five boroughs of NYC and Westchester. Our Membership includes some of the world's finest Event Film Makers, with multiple International Award Winners.
At LIVA, the benefits of membership offers constant growth to your business, and to you personally. Some of the benefits are:
- Networking: An hour before the meeting starts, you can network with other video professionals.
- Education: Get in-depth knowledge from our peers and other pros from a wide range of fields.
- LIVA On-line Yahoo Group Email Service: only current members can join this free email group at Yahoo which provides a place for job listings and equipment for sale, etc.
- Camaraderie: one of the best things about LIVA is the lasting friendships we make with our peers.
- The promotion of goodwill and advancement of videography in the New York area.
- Fun events such as our Holiday Party and annual Mets Game.
