The California Chapter's first official meeting of 1997 elected the following officers for the next year:
President: Alice Vaughan
Secretary: Barbara Wood
Program Chairman: Joanne Page
Newsletter Editor: Lauralee Bennett
With Alice at the helm and Joanne organizing programs of interest, the chapter is looking forward to a busy active year. Official meetings will be planned four times a year with workshops and other activities whenever possible. Alice's suggestion that we each bring two sheets of paper to exchange with others was so successful that this will be continued at future meetings. Those of you who want to join the Chapter should contact Barbara Wood: 3530 Mountain View, Los Angeles, CA 90066.

Future meetings will include "Materials & sources," "Jigs and Tools" and "Teflon Folders".
