Zone 7 consists of ten regions across Northern California and Northern Nevada.

When you join PCA, you either join or are assigned to a region. Activities in one region are generally open to all, and most are readily accessible. Also, regions offer dual membership, so you can maintain membership in your home region, and join an adjacent region for a nominal fee so you can participate more fully in their activities. Just ask!

Members join and stay with a region for many reasons, including its location, the activities offered, and the people they meet.

Membership applications are available online.

You can choose to join any of the above regions, or if you do not designate your preference, one will be assigned to you based on the county in which you reside. We hope to see you soon!
