  • Welcome to the PVSC website!
    When you create an account with PVSC, you are part of a "HOUSEHOLD" which consists of 1 or 2 "MEMBERS".
    If you wish to take part in any offered classes, you must first register for a "MEMBERSHIP"  which will give you access to the Courses and One-Day Presentations.

    PVSC, like so many non-profit organizations, depends on paid membership dues to help with our yearly planning of courses and events. Dues have not increased in many years: $25 for a single membership, and $40 for two people in the same household. Our one-time membership year is July 1, 2022 through December 31, 2022. Following that, membership year will run calendar year.
    We hope you will have a long-time supporting membership with PVSC!

It will from July 1, 2022 through December 31, 2023 (and after that membership will run from January 1 through December 31 each year. With membership you may attend our free "One-Day" presentations and/or register for reasonably priced weekly 4-to-6 week two-hour courses. Depending on instructor choice and facility availability, courses may be held on  Zoom, and/or in person.
