BAEF Members' Showcase

Join us for our second South Bay Members' Showcase, following up on the highly successful event of four years ago.

It's a show-and-tell opportunity to share a variety of recent work and projects with our peers and to learn about what fellow members have been working on.

All media are welcome: print, online, video, and audio (BYOC—bring your own computer). Bring completed projects you are proud of, projects in progress, or gnarly new projects to which the collective wisdom of the membership can bring enlightenment. This will be a great opportunity to see what your colleagues have been up to, gauge current trends, and reaffirm that what we do is valued and appreciated.
