Adding Your 50th Anniversary Event to Our Site
This website serves as the national clearinghouse for information about all local, regional, and national 50th anniversary events. Events added to the site are listed on the event map and list. Anyone can host a 50th anniversary event anytime during 2013 or 2014. Are you interested in hosting an event but aren't sure how to get started? Check out our event planning resources for event ideas, information about the 50th anniversary and much more.
Adding your event is quick and easy. First you'll need the password. If you don't have this, email Lisa Ronald, 50th Communications Coordinator. Our calendar shows only 50th anniversary events and we want to make sure it stays focused.
Once you're logged in, you'll enter information about your event. If the details about your event aren't entirely finalized, don't worry! Enter what you know, then come back later to update the information. To add your event to this website, you will need, at minimum, the following information: unique title; date and time; location (including street address if your event location has one); description; contact name, organization, mailing address, phone number, and email. Part of the process will ask you to place a pushpin on our map, either by entering the street address of your event, or by clicking on the map to place the pushpin yourself. Other optional information you can enter about your event includes: logo or square header image; cost; registration information; website; Flickr tag; Foursquare listing; Twitter handle or hashtag. Click on the button below to begin adding your events now (once you have the password)!
At any time after you've added your event, use the "Edit My Events" button to log back in using your email and the same password that you used originally. If you don't remember the password, email Lisa Ronald, 50th Communications Coordinator. All the events that you've entered will be listed and you can edit or cancel them as necessary.
