Upcoming Lectures – POSTPONED

Dear AIA Members and Supporters,
We hope that you and your loved ones are all well, safe, and healthy during this challenging time.
Unfortunately, our last lecture of the season, scheduled for March 29th, will be postponed until future notice. It is our hope that we will be able to reschedule this lecture, but we cannot know for certain at this time when or where.
All of us here at AIA Ottawa want to thank you for your continued support, enthusiasm, and understanding as we all navigate these uncharted waters together. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
Stay safe,
Chandra Giroux
