ARLIS/NA California chapters combined meeting, March 27, 2019

The Northern California and Southern California chapters of ARLIS/NA held a joint business meeting during the ARLIS/NA 2019 Conference in Salt Lake City. The meeting was held on Wednesday, March 27, 2019, in the Riviera room of the Grand America Hotel from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m.

There were far more Southern than Northern California Chapter attendees and the bulk of the meeting consisted of updates and announcements for the Southern California chapter. For the handful of Northern California Chapter members in attendance, Kay Teel, Northern California Chapter Secretary/Treasurer, gave a brief summary of the current state of the chapter and the chapter's upcoming plans (TBA) for a spring meeting in May and a fall meeting in early November.

The meeting concluded by recognizing California chapter members presenting at the Salt Lake City conference and two group photographs of the meeting attendees were taken.

Prior to the official chapters meeting, an informal gathering of members from both chapters was held on Tuesday evening, March 26, at Bourbon House, a bar with restaurant-quality food, a few blocks from the Grand America Hotel. The Bourbon House staff were accommodating and friendly to our small group and a pleasant time was had by all!
