2017 is here and March 8-9, 2017, PNWARS conference will soon be here.

We hope to have registration open soon.

In 2017 PNWARS is going to try a new format. Dennis Williams, Rosboro, will open our 2017 conference Wednesday March 8 at 1:30 p.m. A keynote address by a West coast Rail Executive will follow Dennis’ opening remarks. We will break about 4:30 p.m. for our hosted reception/mixer which will be open 5:30-7:00 p.m.

Buffet Breakfast will be served Thursday the 9th at 7:00 a.m. Conference will reconvene at 8:00am with a keynote address by an East coast Rail Executive. We will conclude the conference at noon with lunch.

We hope this will help our friends from the Mid West and Eastern time zones with more favorable travel times. Our overall goal is to have more people in attendance at the end of the conference then in the past.

The full conference fee remains at $275.00.
