Each year PSA hosts a "PSA Councils Challenge" competition open to PSA member organizations that include several camera clubs - whether the organization is called a Council, a Federation,
or an Association. The results are announced at the PSA Annual Conference.
S4C participates each year in the Councils Challenge.

The Southern California Roundup Chapter of PSA (known as the SoCal Chapter or the "Roundup") is a local branch of the Society that was organized under the Society's Bylaws in 1955. The Southern California Roundup Chapter received its PSA charter in 1991 at the PSA Annual Conference held in San Antonio, Texas.
The Chapter holds an annual full-day event of photography programs at various locations around Southern California based on a photo opportunity that is available in that location at that time. These events are free or at a greatly reduced rate for PSA members.
