About Our Chapter

Welcome to the home page of the Potomac Valley Chapter of the Association for Information Science (ASIS&T PVC). Our members are primarily located in Washington DC, Northern Virginia, and Southern Maryland.

We host workshops, tutorials, and seminars that strive to further the professional skills and interests of Chapter members. We also strive to provide a forum in which members can meet and engage in the exchange of ideas. If you have ideas for future programs, or would like to volunteer, please send us an email.

The board is currently on the lookout for general volunteers--if you can lend a hand, please let us know.
