Regular meetings are usually held the second Sunday of every other month, unless a special program dictates otherwise. The information below is subject to change.

Previously, meetings were held at the Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities, 6901 Wadsworth Blvd, Arvada, CO 80003. However, for the foreseeable future in 2021, most meetings will be held virtually, via Zoom. We will assess the situation later in the year and decide how/where future meetings will take place. Feel free to contact us for a Zoom link if you wish to participate.

We also have a bookclub for all things Austen and Regency! We normally meet in coffee shops, wineries and breweries on the second Sunday in the off months from the JASNA meetings (unless there's a conflict on the second Sunday). Those are also taking place via Zoom, and those dates are listed below as well.
