EVENTBRITE

Why We Are Using Eventbrite
We have been having overflow crowds at many of our lectures. Due to fire code, we have to limit the number of people who can attend. Rather than turn people away at the door,  we have decided to use Eventbrite, which is a free, widely used event-management website and app. Please take the time to read the directions below thoroughly.
