From The President

Mary GillilandAs I begin my eighth year as President of Phi Beta Kappa - Northern California Association, I thank the membership for its confidence in me. I have enjoyed serving FBKNCA these past terms and look forward to an equally pleasant experience in 2018-19. Other than our Recording Secretary, Stacey Croll, our Board this coming year consists entirely of returning officers and chairs. Stacey, I am sorry to say, is moving south to San Diego, to return to school and earn her R.N. We all wish her luck. I am so pleased that everyone else was willing to "re-up" for another term. They are a delightful group with whom to associate and they make my job very easy, as they do all the work! Current Corresponding Secretary Susan Jenkins has volunteered to take on both secretarial positions. Thank you, Susan. The 2018-19 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 FBKNCA, please contact one of these people to discuss the various openings we may have in the future.

At the Association's Annual Meeting, held 6 May 2018 at the Free House Restaurant in Berkeley, we presented $7500 scholarships to twelve graduate students from four universities in our region. We also gave five Teaching Excellence Awards to faculty members from two 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; see the Teaching Excellence Awards sections on page two. Funds for our scholarships and awards come from your membership fees and gifts (all fully tax-deductible), and from any profit on our social programs. Please support PBKNCA 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 over the weekend of February 15-18, 2019.

A final note: You can now signup for these events online, using PayPal or your credit card. Quick and easy, no coupons to download and mail; you get an instant receipt and you make it easier for our hard-working Program People - Judy Hardardt and O'Neil S. Dillon! See the website at www.pbknca.org. Of course, coupons are still available if you want to send a check. Mary Turner Gilliland President 2011-19

It is over 1.5 acres in size and represents an area from the Pacific Ocean to Sacramento and Stockton, including: the San Francisco, San Pablo and Suisun Bays and a portion of the Sacramento - San Joaquin Delta.  No longer doing active hydrological research, it has been developed as a permanent exhibit focusing on environmental issues relevant to the Bay and Delta regions with interpretive murals, interactive and tactile exhibits covering the entire watershed from the mountains to the Pacific Ocean.  Active tidal cycles can also be observed.
