2015 PCRA Annual Convention
April 24 - 26, 2015
Seven Springs Mountain Resort
Seven Springs, PA


PCRA is proud to announce its partnership with the Flight 93 National Memorial Oral History and Documentation Project.  The project is entering its final nine months of a grant period and the project assistants have conducted more than 800 interviews with people associated with Flight 93, which crashed in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.  We have an opportunity to assist with this project in the same way we have worked on the Veteran’s Oral History Project.  Pennsylvania will take the lead and recruit reporters to transcribe these interviews so the stories are preserved for future generations!  These interviews cannot be used until a transcript is completed and signed off on by the interviewee.  Time is of the essence.  We are looking for volunteers to transcribe these interviews. 
Donna S. Cascio, RMR, CMRS and Susan E. Kiniry, RMR, of our organization are spearheading this very important project. Please contact them and indicate your willingness to volunteer. Donna can be reached at donna.cascio@gmail.com and Susan can be reached at sekiniry@gmail.com.
A complete set of guidelines, forms and other information is available at the bottom of this page.





Since 2003 NCRA has been partnering with the Library of Congress, transcribing interviews conducted with American veterans from all military services. In support of this effort, PCRA will be a vendor at the Sports & Education Expo where a “Patriot Basecamp” will be held. Reporters are needed to report interviews of veterans in attendance, and are eligible for 0.25 NCRA PDCs for each transcription completed.

The Expo will be held Saturday, May 31st from 10am-5pm and Sunday, June 1st from 11am-5pm at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. You can volunteer for two hours or all day.

To learn more about the VHP, please visit their web site at www.loc.gov/vets.

For any questions or to volunteer at the Expo, please contact Kathy McHugh at kathymchugh@verizon.net or at 856-546-1214.
