The Shortlist 2017 Q4: The North Bay Edition

 Our 2017 Q4 issue of The Shortlist is called "The North Bay Edition." We chose this theme because the SMPS Pacific Regional Conference (PRC) will be held in February in Napa, and because many of our members have been affected by the devastating October fires.

Articles include a feature story by Al Anderson and Katelyn Surprenant about the North Bay fires, including what our members have done (and what you can do) to help. In addition, we have a preview of the upcoming PRC by Mai Bui, and, for first-time attendees, a “Beginner’s Guide to PRC” by Erin Clinch. Along with these articles, we also have our regular features, including our news feature known as The Network, a list of new members, and Spotlight articles on both a new member and a committee member. 

 As always, we welcome your comments and suggestions about the Shortlist. If you're interested in contributing an article for a future issue, please let us know. SMPS SFBAC is a volunteer-run organization, so we need and welcome your participation!
