One of my goals for the .Net User Group was to identify all the community calendars in Northwest Arkansas. My list started with a discussion with Cindy Ragan. She is an officer of AITP. We were talking about contacts that she knew and how to submit events to the papers.
So I started researching to see if I could find any more in the area. Below is the list of contacts I have found at this point. This list will be a working list. As I find more I will add to this list. If you know of any others, please submit a comment to this blog and I will include it.
Cindy suggested keeping it simple when sending in event information. You should state what, where and when. Also you should include the cost. Since most papers have limited spacing, I recommend including a snipr link to more details and RSVP. Below is a sample that could be used.
The Northwest Arkansas Dot Net User Group will meet from 5:30 to 8:00 PM August 5 at Jones Center 922 East Emma Avenue Springdale, AR 72764 Room 113. The topic will be "SharePoint Development: It’s all about the Features." This is a free event and RSVP is required .
