Q&A - ARCHIVES

Prior to July 8, 2020, Q&A sessions were held in person following the club’s regular monthly meetings or as Zoom video-conferences for which no  recordings were made.  The highlights of some of the individual topics that were discussed in these sessions are posted in these archives.

More recently, our Q&A sessions have been held weekly as video-conferences.  These sessions were recorded and stored as audio files.  The presentation files (PDF), associated audio recordings (M4A),  and the contents of the “Chat” windows (TXT) for the various sessions can all be downloaded from the Q&A archives.

Note that the listings for the various Q&A sessions are posted in reverse chronological order.
