EVENTS vs. CALENDAR ENTRIES: A calendar notice is a static posting of the chapter meeting, seminar or webinar that does not require a registration follow up. Events are listings which allow online registration and sometimes allow for online payment for the event. Each chapter has the ability to maintain and monitor their local chapter calendar and events. Items listed on the National Calendar are administered by the Site Administrators and apply to all members.
USING SEARCH: If you are not sure where to find something, select Site Search from the bottom of the left hand menu. Enter your criteria in the search box. You may also use the Community Search box at the top of the left hand menu navigation.
