A group of five Leadership Vancouver Island participants have turned out an online aid for event organization.
The new website, westcoastcalendar (dot) com, can be synchronized with other calendars, said Candice Steven, who helped pull the project together.
“The calendar is live and we’re hoping to get many users on it and spread the word,” she said.
The Clayoquot Biosphere Trust will be maintaining the calendar for legal, public events. One-time submissions will go through CBT to get into the calendar, which will not include paid advertising, Steven said.
“There are quite a number of other calendars in existence. We’re trying to address the fragmentation in the community and create one central go-to place in the community,” she said.
