The 2022 Annual Meeting registration is well underway - over 200 members are already registered. You can register on this web site if paying by credit card. Visit the Annual meeting page for details.

You can also download a mail-in registration form and pay by check, but mail-in registrations need to be mailed by the end of April to be received in a timely manner as USPS first class mail has slowed.

You can also register on-site, although on-site registrants will not be able to buy a ticket to the banquet.

We hope to see you in Harrisburg!

Our new e-Store will begin operations on January 31st. The store can be accessed by clicking "Storefront" within the PRRTHS menu selection. We will quickly add all of our available books to the new store. Adding back issues of the Keystone may take most of February - there are a lot of them.

PRRT&HS members will receive member discounts on all books.

Also - changes in Credit card security rules have forced us to only accept credit cards on line. We will no longer be able to accept credit cards by mail or phone.

Fortunately our new storefront uses the latest security features, and will provide quick confirmation of payment.
