Anyone can share news items that might be of interest to the community. To add your own news item to the site:

  1. On the News & Events Page, click the Add News Item button below the pictures toward the top of the page. This will take you to a page labeled Create Event.

    • Whether you are adding a link or attachment with more information
      • No
      • Link
      • File
  3. You can provide further information by including a link or attaching a file. Thus, you can link to an outside website that contains the news item. Alternatively, you can upload a file (Word document, PDF, etc.) that contains the news item. For example, you can link to a news story on a news source such as, link to an announcement on another website, or upload a file containing the news you want to share.
  4. If you select Link, a box will appear where you can type the URL of the webpage that contains the information you want to share. If you select File, a Choose File button will appear. Once you have a chosen a file, click the Upload button to ensure that it successfully loads.
  5. When you have finished filling out the fields, click Save to add your news item to the site.
