Events Portlet

Are you hosting a public event that you'd like to feature on the homepage? Publish your event in your events folder and then submit a request to the Web Team filling out our help form to have it featured on the district calendar.

The APS website has event portlet boxes that highlight upcoming events around the district. Departments have those same portlets that allow them to show upcoming events from their department calendar.
