FotoClave is a  premier photography forum for Central and Northern California.  It draws the finest digital photographers together for a weekend of learning and camaraderie. Begun in 1957, it was an enterprise of the combined councils of the area. Recently, because of the fallout of other councils, it has been taken over by N4C. We plan to hold it every other year. Our initial effort in 2017 was quite successful drawing well over 300 attendees. It is a very popular conference, which inspires and excites those attending.
