ANNOUNCEMENT FROM THE AIA-OC PRESIDENT, LIANNE OAKES



As the newly elected President of the Orange County Society, I look forward to working with all of you during this time of pandemic as we figure out new ways to continue our history of offering a variety of lectures and events with presentations online. We hope to go back to meeting again in person in 2021.

The coming events for this Fall and onward are still in the planning stages, but we do have the two AIA lecturers for 2020-2021 already committed. Be sure to stay tuned for more details on the website and via email.

NEXT LECTURE

On Sunday May 31, 2020 at 2:00 PM, AIA Orange County will have the annual business meeting via Zoom. This will consume the first 15 minutes. After this we are planning on having our cancelled May 2 speaker, Dr. Dominique Rissolo of UCSD, present his lecture: Submerged Ice Age America: The View from Yucatan. We hope you can join us as we try a new, but hopefully temporary, venue.
