To all volunteers that want to participate in the Pacific Science Center Model Train Show. The Pacific Science Center (PSC) is now requiring a background check for all volunteers. They will conduct the background check through the WSP background check system. Yes, this will require volunteers to provide some information to the PSC. This information is minimal. Volunteers will need to provide your full name, birthdate, and gender. Please note it may be easier for volunteers to provide that information prior to arriving at the PSC for the train show. This will insure a fast and easy check-in when arriving at the PSC. I know this may be another hurdle for folks volunteering at the PSC train show but we must work together with the PSC staff to provide a safe show. The background system is now linked directly off of the Pacific Science Center website.
You can provide your information to the PSC directly. This site is secure. In the background check site there is a drop-down menu for the various groups that are volunteering for the show. If you are just volunteering and not a member of a specific modular group then just list yourself with the NMRA group. The link to the Pacific Science Center page of the background check is: fs27.formsite.com/PacificScienceCenter/Railroad-2018/ .
If you have questions or have any problems with site access please call Jillian Vashro at the PSC. Her phone number is 206-443-3653 and her email is JVashro@pacsci.org. You may contact me but I will not really be able to assist with any issues involving the background check or their website. If there are questions regarding the PSC show then I can help you.
Yes, we need volunteers for the PSC show!
We have lots of tasks that need to be done during the show. The show is January 13-15, 2018 but we will need assistance with unloading on Friday the 12th before the show. Volunteers can also help during the load out Monday evening. This year we will have a lot more single person exhibits than in previous years, this will mean that we need more folks to help out giving these people breaks. If you have any questions regarding the show please contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org . Parking is free as well as the entrance to the PSC. Help out the 4th Division. Remember this show is the main provider of the 4th Divisions income for the year.
