New Website Feature, the Event Calendar

The New York State Board has added an event calendar to the New YorK State Website. You can find it at www.nyaoh.com/events.

We will be putting on the calendar various State, County and Division sponsored events throughout the year and your and your division can submit events to be posted on this calendar.

Now, we are only going to post events that benefit the Hibernian Division, for example, the Irish 2000 Festival in Saratoga, the Hudson Valley Irish Fest, and the Nassau County Feis are run by corporations, but the members that  run these events are Hibernians and the events benefit the underlying Counties and Divisions, so they will be posted.

An example of what not to submit is a local Knights of Columbus dinner, where maybe 10 members of the Divisions are also members of that Council. Since no benefit goes to the AOH, please do not submit it since it will not be posted. Also please do not submit division meetings. They are already listed on the division directory, so there is no need to list them twice.

When posting events, please send in a word document that can be copied and pasted or type directly into the email information about the event. Do not send a PDF as many times they can’t be copied and pasted. PDFs will not be accepted. The address of the event, including the zip code and phone number of the location. Include the Date, the Time, and the Sponsoring Division. Also include the Contact Person’s Name, Phone Number and Email Address.

And please send it to calendar@nyaoh.com or nyaohcalendar@gmail.com to submit it. You can contact me at 516-515-0484 for any questions.
