On December 14, 2016 we had a great virtual meeting of our Northern California chapter. You can view the meeting minutes here.
We had some interesting presentations from our chapter members on current projects, including:

Jason presented on the digitizing and cataloging of a collection of images gifted to the UCB VRC in 2014 from the late James Cahill, Professor Emeritus at UC Berkeley and a preeminent scholar of Chinese painting.
