The Eldorado-Emmerson Chapter of Southern California

ACGA has 19 regional chapters.  With a charter date of 1982, the Eldorado Chapter is the second oldest chapter of the ACGA. Its 55 members reside in Southern California, from Ventura to San Diego. Every three months, a different member hosts the chapter meeting in their home; the December meeting being a holiday party. At these meetings, the members enjoy friendship with others interested in glass; share experiences and tales of treasure hunting, and develop knowledge and understanding of glass companies and patterns.  You must be a member of ACGA to belong to a Chapter.

Various chapter members provide talks on rich cut glass to groups throughout Southern California. Past outside activities include cut glass exhibits at the Banning Museum, the Pasadena Library, and at a Bustamonte Antique Show. The chapter hosted the ACGA 2000 annual convention in Costa Mesa, California, and co-hosted the 2007 ACGA Convention in Portland, Oregon. The Chapter also hosted the 2012 ACGA convention which was held in San Diego.
