You can also connect through the VLSAA-NorCal listserv. It's a great way to find friends, build your professional network, and learn about events in the Northern California area. Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, we host events and plan other opportunities to connect alumni throughout the state. Look for announcements targeted at alumni in the Bay Area and Sacramento regions.
