    How to notify us about an event
    We need everyone’s help in notifying us about events. We’d like to hear about ME/CFS events in any country. We’re interested in the following kind of thing:

    • Conferences
    • Meetings
    • Online charity voting contests
    • Rallies and demonstrations
    • Lectures
    • Webinars
    • Publication of important research
    • Deadlines for submitting testimony or evidence to committees
    To get an event on the calendar, just post on this thread with the content in the same format you see the calendar items in the first post, that is:

    Event title, City, State/Province (if applicable), Country
    Web link to information

    For example:

    31 May
    Invest in ME International ME (ME/CFS) Conference, London, UK Conference 2013/IIMEC8 Home.htm

    Once we’ve seen your post we’ll copy and paste the content into the calendar list and delete your post to keep the thread tidy.

    As you can see we just put the basic information in the calendar to keep it manageable. If you want to give more information about an event, especially if you think people might want to discuss it, please start a thread of its own for it in this forum.

    How to help maintain the calendar
    If I’m the only one maintaining the calendar, it could well be a very short-lived project! I hope we’ll all benefit from it so I hope that a few people will volunteer to spend a few minutes a week entering material onto the calendar.

    All that’s involved will be adding any events you notice to the calendar, and keeping an eye out for new event notification posts on the thread. If you see a notification post, copy and paste the event in the appropriate place in the first post on the thread (the one that contains the calendar); and delete the post that contained the notification. You’ll be given edit access for that particular thread that will allow you to do those things.

    That’s it! If that takes more than a very few minutes a week – or even any minutes if there are several of us – I’d be amazed and if you find it’s too much for you, you can stop! No problem.

    Nice little thing to do to contribute to the community, though – please start a conversation with me via your inbox if you’re willing to help.

    Calendar FAQs
    We need to keep this thread tidy so we can work in it easily. If you want to discuss the calendar or ask questions about it, please do that on this other thread. If there are FAQs, we’ll post them and the answers in this post.

    Thanks to...

    My co-volunteer Little Bluestem!

    When you notify us about an event and we copy and paste it into the calendar and delete your post for tidiness, apparently it also deletes us having 'liked' your post and you vanish unacknowledged. But not any more!

    Thanks to the following people for notifying us of events to put into the calendar:
