User's Guides - Welcoming Groups

  • Prepare. There is no save-and-resume button. But you can return to edit an event.
  • Categories. Select at least one category in each group:
    • Event Type
    • Target Audience – who you designed event for
    • Welcoming Pages – where to publish the event
  • Venues / Organizers.  Enter the name of the organizer (your group) and the location (venue).
    • If it is already in the database, the calendar will populate your event with relevant contact and location information.
    • If you have to add a new organizer or venue, please fill in all the fields.  It will help others.
  • Online Events. Select “Online Event” as your Venue.
  • Recurring Events. Powerful, but a little confusing the first time:
    • To enter a meeting on the same date each month (e.g., the 5th), select “on the same day”.
    • To enter a meeting on the same day and/or week (e.g., 1st Monday), select “on a different day”.

Relevant to our local LGBTQ and allied communities.

This includes western North Carolina and nearby communities in contiguous states (e.g., eastern Tennessee, northwestern South Carolina, northern Georgia, southwestern Virginia. It also includes groups based outside the region that have a local presence.
