About the SNAME Arctic Section Luncheon Meetings:  
We maintain our monthly luncheon schedule from September through May, usually meeting on the third Wednesday of the month. (Our summer break runs June to August). Presentations cover a large variety of topics, including marine, Arctic, logistics, scientific research, ice monitoring, ice management, and more. Program development is now underway for our future Luncheon Meetings. Please contact us if you or a colleague are interested in presenting at a future luncheon meeting.
Luncheon invitations are sent by email to our contact list in advance of each event. Contact us if you wish to attend or receive information on future Arctic Section events.  
Hybrid luncheons are proposed for the future, once in-person meetings are deemed safe. The Westin Hotel in Calgary has long been our venue for in-person luncheon meetings, and we look forward to the day we can gather there again.
