Getting Involved

We would love involvement from more people! If you notice any errors or would like to submit changes or add content to our website please see our Contributing Guidelines.

In addition, you can provide feedback by:


Our website content is primarily written in markdown and the key pages are:

Home Page (index.html)
├── About (
├── Get Involved (
├── Timeline (
│   └── <each timeline item can be found under _timeline />
├── Events (
│   └── <each event has its own page under _posts />
├── Contact (
└── Code of Conduct (

Much of the content does not change, we primarily add new events.


New events are added as new .md files in the _posts/ directory using an event template. We request you copy the template if you are submitting a new event.


Announcements are displayed at the top of each page up until a defined date and should be kept to a short line length. Announcements are added as new .md files in the _announcements/ directory.

Timeline Posts

Timeline posts are displayed in reverse chronological order on the timeline page. Timeline posts are added as new .md files in the _timeline/ directory.
