CAHS Ottawa Videos

filmThe CAHS Ottawa chapter has partnered with the Canada Aviation and Space Museum to stream multimedia presentations made by all CAHS Ottawa speakers who wish to have their presentation made available to the general public from the museum's web site. CAHS Ottawa member Glen Mathews has been using his videography and editing talents to record the Ottawa speakers in High Definition video with audio, edit and title these videos and integrate the speaker's PowerPoint slides into each video production. There are currently six videos available from the September 2017 to June 2018 season available for viewing with two more in the process of being added.

A special thank you to Glen Mathews and CASM museum staff members Sonia Mendes, Senior Staff Writer and Cédric St. Amour, Volunteer Co-Ordinator for making this possible.
