    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 depends on paid Membership dues to help with our yearly planning of offerings. Dues have not increased in many years: $25 for a single membership, and $40 for two people in the same household.
    We hope you will have a long-time supporting membership with PVSC!
