Dear Member,

The Holiday Season is upon us!  Traditionally NCWCA does not have a chapter meeting in December or January but we hope you will join us for the fun-filled year-end party on December 28 at Judy Johnson-Williams' studio. And as you are doing your gift shopping online, remember to designate NCWCA as your AmazonSmile non-profit. Small gifts add up and enable us to offer a rich and robust program to members and artists in the Bay Area.
