CALENDAR GUIDELINES

What is the purpose of the Applegate Valley Connect (AVC) Calendar?

  • A resource for members of the Applegate Valley community to share what we’re doing.
  • A means for sharing your events with community members, potential volunteers, and visitors to the area.
  • A planning tool for you to make sure your upcoming event doesn’t overlap with other community events.

Who is meant to use the Calendar?

  • Visitors looking for local events and things to do.
  • Organizations, schools, businesses, and other groups reaching out to the community.
  • Members of the Applegate Valley community.
  • Volunteers and would-be-volunteers.

The AVC Team can help you:

  • With questions about how to view, enter, and edit information.
  • Transfer ownership of events from one user to another
    • Example: Pam created events for the Applegate Community Garden Team. Pam moved to the state of Washington a year later, but the events are still under her name in her account. The Garden Team creates a new account for their new outreach coordinator, Jim. He contacts the Applegate Valley Connect team and, after some discussion, they transfer Pam’s events to Jim.

Calendar Guidelines

  • Do not post inappropriate content such as slander, cursing, or any imagery not suitable for a general audience.
  • No garage/yard sales or promotional sales events, unless they are part of a fundraising initiative or greater community effort.
  • No job advertising.
  • No personal events such as family reunions.
  • No closed meetings. The calendar is meant to be used to advertise events that are open to the community, not meetings meant to be attended by the same set-in-stone group.
    • Example of good usage: The Applegate Community Garden Team is hosting a planning luncheon on August 12. RSVP at…
    • Example of misuse: The Applegate Community Garden Team has monthly, private team meetings on the 2nd of every month. Minutes can be found at…
  • Please do not post the same event (same day and time) more than once. Recurring events (weekly, monthly, yearly, first Wednesday of every month, etc.) are allowed, however.
    • Example: There are two events, both taking place on January 16 from 5 to 6 PM. Both are posted by the same organization (or two different users from the same organization) and have the same title, place, and general description.

DIRECTORY GUIDELINES

What is the purpose of the Applegate Connect Directory?

  • A tool for community members, nonprofits, and businesses to post and update information about their groups.
  • A resource for members of the Applegate Valley community to connect and work together.
  • A means for visitors and community members to  find information and resources.

Who is meant to use the Directory?

  • Visitors and community members looking for information
  • Nonprofits, government agencies, businesses, churches, and small teams who want to let people know what they do and what they have to offer.

The Applegate Connect Team can help you:

  • With questions on how to view, enter, and edit information
  • Transfer ownership of listings from one user to another
    • Example: Pam created the listing for the Applegate Community Garden Team. Pam moved to the state of Washington a year later, but the listing is still under her name, in her account. Since she left, the team’s primary meeting location and contact info have changed – the listing is now outdated. The Garden Team creates a new account for their new outreach coordinator, Jim. He contacts the AVC team and, after some discussion, they transfer Pam’s listings to Jim.

Directory Guidelines

  • Do not post inappropriate content such as slander, cursing, or any imagery not suitable to a general audience.
  • Include job and volunteer recruitment information alongside other information about your organization. Do not create a listing specifically for open jobs and volunteer opportunities.
    • Example of good usage: The Applegate Community Garden Team posts a listing about their team. They include their goals, history, affiliates, and information on how to volunteer/apply for a paid position.
    • Example of misuse: The Applegate Community Garden team posts a listing called “Open Position Wanted: Outreach Coordinator.” They include job requirements and a link to the application.”
  • Please do not post the same listing more than once. If you cannot access a listing that represents your organization or business, contact us.
