Welcome to the PNWS Small Systems Committee!

Our Mission: To provide support and resources for Small Systems and meet their challenges in today's changing world. 

Co-Chairs Lance Peterson and Bob Cunningham, each run separate small systems and are familiar with the trials and tribulations.
Their goal is to share, and assist Small Systems to achieve and succeed in a big way.  Whether you're looking for training, templates, how to's, or just general advice, Bob and Lance are here to help you!
