2021-2022 Program

Come learn about new discoveries, new treasures, and new ideas! All lectures are free and open to the public, so why not join us for an afternoon?
 
Dear AIA Members and Supporters,
 
We hope that you and your loved ones are all well, safe, and healthy during this challenging time.
 
As we continue to be vigilant and careful about the spread of COVID-19, we have decided to schedule the fall of our 2021-2022 program online. The lectures will be hosted via Zoom. An email with a link to the meeting will be sent before the lecture (to be added to the mailing list, please email aiaottawachapter@gmail.com). If you have any questions about how this works, or how to use Zoom, please do not hesitate to contact us. We hope to be back in person for 2022 and will update everyone once we know.
 
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.
 
Stay safe,
 
Chandra Giroux
Secretary
