Board of Directors Meeting:

Board of Directors meetings are held every month, usually on the Thursday one week prior to the Membership meeting. Unlike the monthly Membership meeting, the Board of Directors Meeting is not open to the general public. All PNWC members are welcome and invited to attend.

Membership Meeting:

Meetings of the membership are held every month, usually on the third Friday. Visitors are warmly welcomed! Typically, we first address the general business of the Chapter. This can be a great time to learn about not only what the PNWC is doing, but also what other rail-related groups are doing in the region and around the world. We then break for refreshments, and after the break we have the program. Monthly programs are always interesting and often feature guest speakers, multimedia presentations or videos selected from our extensive library.

Lending Library:

The PNWC maintains a library of over 1,200 railroad-related books and more than 500 videos that members can check out. The Lending Library is open on the Saturday afternoon following the membership meeting and every Monday from 10:00 am to Noon. Check out of materials is subject to a loan agreement.
