conferenceWith the advent of the pandemic and related restrictions, the National Shelley China Club (NSCC) has had to make numerous adaptations. In this particular instance, this otherwise dark cloud does indeed have a silver lining. The use of Zoom and other streaming technologies has enabled both the greeting of old friends and the creation of new ones.

We intend to hold periodic zoom conferences in the future and this page will be your source for future releases.
