Dear Members of the PIA,
We have entered the last quarter of 2020. It is Spring and spirits are lifting … and we look forward to moving to level 1 of lockdown, which means most normal activities are possible once again.
At the PIA we have had some “real” meetings and a President’s Breakfast on the rooftop of the PIA Office and it was long overdue.
We hope to have many more live events again soon and look forward to see you all there.
