OWA+DP Meeting at Now What?! Exhibition, CCA Galleries, Dec 6, 2018by Wendy Bertrand | Share #1327
Preparation for the meeting
• OWA+DP contributed $2000 for shipping to bring the exhibit to San Francisco and Jean Nilsson helped install the exhibit.
• Bridget Basham, SC/programs coordinator made sure the meeting was advertised to the public and that there was fine food, Maryam Moayery Nia, SC Newsletter editor, took lots of photos, both made sure everyone felt welcome.
• Printed Jan/April 2018 Newsletters, membership information, and our History Booklet were available at the door. Specific OWA posters from the past were on display for our meeting and a video collage of some of OWA+DP historic events played silently in the background as part of the exhibit during the meeting.

Steering Committee transition meetingShare #1325
On November 17th, 2018 the old and new steering committee members met at Judy Row's home in Oakland for the annual Steering Committee transition meeting. We discussed the various Steering Committee positions and responsibilities for the new members and each person chose her new or continuing role.
The new steering committee chairs are as follows:
Policies & Procedures: Carolyn Orazi
Programs: Bridget Basham, Allison Kinst
Public Relations: Claire Hansen
Membership: Leslie Golden
Newsletter: Maryam Moayery Nia
Information Administrator: Betty Woo
We also said a heartfelt thank you and sad goodbye to those members rotating off the steering committee: Hannah Chatham, Helen Vasquez, Conyee Chan and Spring Friedlander. We’ll miss them at the meetings but will see you soon at an upcoming OWA event.
We discussed membership strategies and potential upcoming programs. (See Programs) Finally, we set the Steering Committee meeting dates and locations for the 2019 calendar year. As usual, we will alternate between San Francisco and East Bay. As a reminder, OWA members are always welcome at any Steering Committee meeting.
