- Offer a service not available in the nonprofit sector
- Professional organizations, especially in social services and health related fields

Please submit the event name, date, time, place, cost, and a description of the event (descriptions should contain a very brief narrative on who should participate, contact information for questions or registration and information on how the community will benefit). All submissions should be made via email, with the event name and date in the subject line to: email@example.com
**Please include event descriptions**
Submission must be received by Tuesday at 5:00 PM to be included in that week’s edition. Event submissions for same-week events will not be published; events submitted on Tuesday should be occurring no earlier than the following Monday. Events can be published up to two weeks before their occurrence. This allows adequate event promotion.
Local Events will run within approximately two weeks of occurring.
Save the Dates will run within approximately four to six weeks of occurring.
Employment Opportunities entries will be listed for no longer than four weeks. If after that time, the position is still open, it can be resubmitted for inclusion.
Volunteer Opportunities are now being listed on the Volunteer Brazos Valley Website. For more information please visit www.VolunteerBrazosValley.org.
