Assabet Valley Camera Club, established in 1985 as a Hudson-based photography organization, meets the 1st. and 3rd. Wednesday of the month from September through May. The first meeting of the month generally features a program designed to instruct and/or to entertain camera enthusiasts.  During the second monthly meeting, member digital image competitions are judged and critiqued by qualified individuals. 

Generally, AVCC meetings are hybrid, and take place on Zoom and in the Basement Meeting Room at the Hudson Senior Center, 29 Church Street, Hudson, and officially begin at 7:15 PM.
