NorCalPCA - Event Posting Guidelines

NorCalPCA welcomes members to share their events on NorCalPCA’s online events calendar and NorCalPCA Members Facebook Group, but before you do, please read our Member Event Posting Guidelines below!

Member Event Posting Guidelines

 

There are three types of events:

  1. Free events: If you want members to RSVP through NorCalPCA’s website, by emailing you or another member, or do not need members to RSVP at all, then create a Free event.

  2. External events: If you want members to RSVP through another website, create an External event.

  3. Ticketed events: If you want to limit the number of members that can RSVP, email Events@NorCalPCA.org the details of your event to create a Ticketed event for you.

 

The following information is required for your event posting:

  • Event Name

  • Location: Type the full address (please also include the name of the location here or in the Event Details)

  • Event Start Date & Time

  • Event End Date & Time

  • Event Teaser

  • Event Details:

    • Please include a short description of your event.

    • All events must include the contact details (name and email) of a NorCalPCA member that will be present at the event that.

    • Members must include instructions on how to RSVP for the event. This may include,

      • No RSVP required (Free Event),

      • RSVP through NorCalPCA’s website (Free Event),

      • RSVP by email and include an email address to RSVP to (Free Event),

      • RSVP through an external link (External Event), or

      • RSVP by selecting a ticket through NorCalPCA’s website (Ticketed Event)

    • If the event is taking place in a public location, guidance should be provided in the “Event Details” section of the Event page on how to find the NorCalPCA member listed as the Contact at the event. For example, “Look for the woman/man with a “NorCalPCA Member Event” sign/ wearing the white baseball cap/ standing by the front entrance/ etc.”.

  • Category: Select “Member Event” as the category type.

 

Managing your event posting:

To edit your event, click on the cog icon near the top right-hand corner of the window and select “Edit” from the dropdown menu.

If you chose to have members RSVP through the website, click on the cog icon near the top right-hand corner of the window and select “Attendee List” to view a list of people that have registered for your event.

Do not use the blue “Invite” button to invite members to your event. Members will be notified of your event via NorCalPCA’s Weekly Events Email.

 

Event restrictions:

  • Events must be inclusive (no discrimination based on race, ethnicity, religion, sex, gender, sexual orientation, age, physical ability, or otherwise) and family friendly (no pornographic or hateful material). This does not mean that you can’t, for example, have a meetup at a bar (where those under 21 are not allowed), go on a strenuous hike (of which not all members are physically capable of doing), go to an art gallery with nudity, or go see a comedian whose act includes some adult humor. Use your best discretion.

  • Member Events cannot use NorCalPCA resources.  If Members wish to use NorCalPCA resources (e.g. funds, hardware, digital assets, etc.) then members must ask the NorCalPCA Events Committee to approve the event to become a “NorCalPCA Official Event” by emailing Events@NorCalPCA.org.

  • If you are unsure if your event is restricted or not, please email Events@NorCalPCA.org with a short description of your event.

 

Disclaimer: The Northern California Peace Corps Association is not legally responsible for events categorized as “Member Events”.
