From the President

Mary GillilandAs I begin my tenth year as President of Phi Beta Kappa – Northern California Association, I thank the mem-bership for its confidence in me. I have enjoyed serving ΦBKNCA these past terms and look forward to an equally pleasant experience in 2019-20.

Our Board this coming year consists mostly of returning officers and chairs. I am pleased that so many were willing to “re-up” for another term, and I welcome O’Neil Dillon as 1st VP, Programs. These people are a de-lightful group with whom to associate and they make my job very easy, as they do all the work! The 2019-20 Nominating Committee consists of four members: Judy Hardardt– Chair, Elizabeth Archambeault, Maria Norall, and Gerry Richards. If you should feel a yen to participate in the governance of ΦBKNCA, please contact one of these people to discuss the various openings we may have in the future.

At the Association’s Annual Meeting, held 5 May 2019 at the Bancroft Hotel in Berkeley, we presented $7500 scholarships to twelve graduate students from six universities in our region. We also gave five Teaching Excel-lence Awards to faculty members from three different campuses; these professors were nominated by former students for their outstanding ability to make learning interesting and inspiring. It is not too early to nominate a teacher who had a great impact on your life for the 2020 TE Award; see the Teaching Excellence Awards sec-tion on page two. Funds for our scholarships and awards come from your membership fees and gifts (all fully tax-deductible), also from any profit on our social programs. Please support ΦBKNCA however you are able: attend our monthly events to meet other members and to learn about the wonders of the Bay Area, donate to our Scholarship and Teaching Excellence funds, and join a hundred or more “seekers after knowledge” at the annual Asilomar conference; the next will be held over the weekend of February 14-17, 2020.

I look forward to meeting many of you at some of our events.

Mary Turner Gilliland, President 2011-2020

I look forward to meeting you at one of our upcoming activities, and I thank you for your continued support of Phi Beta Kappa Northern California Association.

This tour shares with you a few of the highlights of the incredible building, including views of Lake Merritt and downtown Oakland from atop a three-tiered roof garden, and the serene Koi Pond. It is a truly Californian indoor/outdoor landmark.

Built in 1969 with a design by Kevin Roche and landscaping by Dan Kiley, the Museum recently completed a major renovation and expansion project, overseen by San Francisco-based firm Mark Cavagnero Associates, which honors Roche and Kiley’s original vision of a vibrant urban park and public space.

EVENT - Asilomar 2020 34nd Annual Asilomar Conference 
the weekend of February 14 - 17, 2020

Asilomar 2020 34nd Annual Asilomar Conference 
the weekend of February 14 - 17, 2020

Where is Asilomar? The beautiful Asilomar Conference Grounds was designed in the Arts & Crafts style by architect Julia Morgan and is located near Monterey, California. We have held our conference there for the past 33 years. For more see the Wiki

Asilomar once again beckons! Last year’s conference reminded us of the pleasures of dialogue in the liberal arts – a conversation that flows from history to literature, from biology to design, from neuroscience to music to foreign affairs. Many members have already registered in anticipation of another great event. We are contacting potential speakers now (do you have a suggestion? Let me know).

Deirdre Frontczak, Asilomar Chair
