Series consists of meeting minutes of the JIAS National Executive from 1943-1950 and 1961-1965 and the National Offiers for 1980. Years 1945 and 1948 are missing. Not all meetings are represented. The meetings alternated between Montreal, at the JIAS Headquarters on Esplanade Avenue, and various locations in Toronto, including the 455 Spadina office.
The minutes document the business of the executive during these periods, and several include memoranda and reports. Some minutes include regional reports with activity statistics. The 1940s records reflect JIAS’s growth within Canada, in particular the establishment of the Winnipeg office. The later years evidence JIAS’s increasingly international scope and involvement with projects around the world.
