Step one

You can post an event if you are a registered member of Volunteer Prince George. If you have a profile here, you’ve likely gone through this at least once before, or your organization has a document someplace, with your login information. If this is your first time, you may be required to add a WordPress account to your email address. WordPress needs your information as we built our website on it. This is no big deal; it gives you the option to start a free blog on WordPress.com, but it’s not a deal breaker if you don’t take advantage of that. Start with logging in to WordPress. The ‘Lost Password’ option will send you a ‘renew password’ link if you forget or want to change your password.

Begin by selecting a category for your event. A drop menu has mega categories to choose from. Chose the type of event you will host, attracting others to attend. Click ‘Next’. Enter your organization’s name, and the listing type.
