    Save the Date for the SoCal Chapter Annual Holiday Party + Sternheim Scholarship Fundraiser - 12/9. Registration will open soon, and the cost this year is only $65 for members and $45 for students for a full spread of dinner and open bar from 6-9pm at Golden Road Brewing. Three of our wonderful members have already volunteered to sponsor student attendees – if you're a student interested in sponsorship to attend, please contact me. And if you'd like to sponsor a student, there will be an option to do so on the registration form once it is live.

    11/16 - Bowers Museum visit with the San Diego Chapter
    Come down to the Bowers Museum for a thought-provoking experience exploring the collections, a docent-led tour of the featured exhibition, "Dimensions of Form: Tamayo & Mixografia", followed by conversation and a drink, snack, or early dinner with our San Diego cohorts.

    We've locked in a special group rate for this event: Adults - $14, Seniors and Students - $11.

    See attached flyer for details, or the event page on Connect, where you can register. Or here:

    You'll have plenty of time on either end of the tour to explore the other galleries. Check out the Current Exhibitions page and also the Upcoming Exhibitions page (the Arthur Beaumont exhibition will be open when we visit; click the link - I don't even know what to say but WOW).

    Know a non-member who might be interested in hanging out with a bunch of librarians and exploring art, artifacts, and local + global cultural history? They can register on the chapter's public website:

    I'm really excited about this event – it's off the beaten path for our typical event locations, we finally have an excuse visit the Bowers, and also finally reconnect with our "sister" chapter members.

    Hope to see you there,

    Shelly Ray, SLA-SCC President-Elect 2019

    Regrettably, I won't be able to attend either of these events. We're celebrating my mother's 82nd birthday on 11/16 with a trip to Farmer's Market and a special dinner, and on Dec. 9 I'll be in San Francisco at the AGU 2019 conference hosting a panel on scientific publishing. I know both SLA-SCC events will be a tremendous success!
