Last week, we showed you how to (as a reporter) add your article on The Rapidian. This week, we show you (and by that we mean anyone with a user account for The Rapidian) how to add your event to our Calendar pages.

If you've been looking for a way to let more people know what your organization or company is doing (special events, concerts, lectures, meetings, and so on), you may want to consider utilizing the calendar right here on The Rapidian. With the upcoming week's events highlighted right on our front page, the Rapidian calendar is a great way to let people know about your event.

Watch the short video here to see how it's done.

The Rapidian, a program of the 501(c)3 nonprofit Community Media Center, relies on the community’s support to help cover the cost of training reporters and publishing content.

We need your help.

If each of our readers and content creators who values this community platform help support its creation and maintenance, The Rapidian can continue to educate and facilitate a conversation around issues for years to come.

Please support The Rapidian and make a contribution today.

Comments, like all content, are held to The Rapidian standards of civility and open identity as outlined in our Terms of Use and Values Statement. We reserve the right to remove any content that does not hold to these standards.
