The Ottawa Centre is comprised of about 90 CMOS members. The Centre holds monthly meetings downtown from September through May. Our meetings are open to members and the public. Meetings start with lunch followed by a presentation by an invited speaker and discussion. Occasionally our meetings are joint with partner groups or societies. About every ten years, the Ottawa Centre hosts the annual CMOS Congress.
Outreach activities aimed at high school, university and post graduate students are a priority for the Ottawa Centre. We judge and provide prizes at regional science fairs in Ottawa and Gatineau.

About the presentation:
Earth is a water planet. Water is the connector to all forms of life on earth. Water is the major constituent in humans, animals and plants. Clean water is essential for good health. Much of the water on the planet has been contaminated and obtaining clean water is becoming an increasing challenge.
There is an imperative and widespread need for new, economical technologies to improve water quality and Joseph will speak about the EOS-2000, a transformative technology, which WCI started introducing to the market about 12 years ago.
