You are warmly invited to the Annual Membership Meeting of AMWA NorCal. We will enjoy brunch in a private dining room at the landmark Delancey Street Restaurant on the Embarcadero. Please see the menu choices and registration details below.
After brunch, chapter president Andrea Johnson will introduce the chapter officers for 2020. Officers will report briefly on the status of matters under their purview and events for the current year. The Chair of the Pacific Coast Conference Committee will announce the plans for the Conference to be scheduled in the second quarter of 2020.
Following the Board report, five chapter members who attended the 2019 AMWA Medical Writing and Communications Conference in San Diego will share their conference experiences in brief talks. We expect these talks to be of value to chapter members whether or not they attended the Conference.

The Venue
“Delancey Street Restaurant is a place every local should visit at least once.” Hidden SF
Delancey Street has a Bay view, funky-chic atmosphere, and good food. Part of the non-profit Delancey Street Foundation since 1991, the restaurant provides support and training to help former convicts successfully reenter the workforce.

Alternatively, Caltrain and light rail take you to within a block of the restaurant. It is a short walk from the Salesforce Transit Center and a slightly longer walk from the Embarcadero BART station.
