Schedule of Meetings and Training Events

PCSAR typically meets the second Wednesday of each month at the Gritman Medical Center in Moscow, Idaho. Most meetings are in the executive boardroom on the third floor (new part, south section). Sometimes that venue is busy, so we meet in the third floor classroom (old part, west/south section).

Schedule for 2015

Date Activity
March 11 Annual meeting: election of officers, annual dues collection. Tentatively at Shari's in Moscow.
August 19 Pot-luck back-to-school meeting. Location and time to be determined. This is the third Wednesday to allow for returning students. Training will probably be the following Saturday.
September 26 Probably date for council-wide training.

In March, PCSAR's annual meeting is usually held at a local restaurant. Contact an officer after the February meeting to find out the location.

In August the practice has been to gather for a potluck supper, with no business meeting.

We usually hold training events the Saturday after the business meeting. Sometimes people's availability shifts the training.

All PCSAR members are expected to complete two online courses related to search management:
