The meetings were held at the University of Toronto, and included a paper session at the David Dunlap Observatory and a garden party (by special invitation) at Don Alda Farm hosted by Mrs. Dunlap. The meetings concluded with a formal dinner in the Great Hall of Hart House jointly hosted by the AAVSO and the RASC.
