Q. What is NAM's Community Calendar event posting policy?

A. Postings are free for all NAM Members (regardless of type) and government agencies.  Fundraising events may not be posted on this calendar.

NAM reserves the right to remove postings. If your event posting is removed, you may contact NAM to determine the reason for removal.

This calendar is for Nebraska and western Iowa events only.  Our definition of "event" means it's held at a physical location or an online educational webinar. "Deadlines" (without an attached event at a physical location) are not considered an "event" for this calendar, for example.  Fundraising events, for members or nonmembers will not be posted on this calendar.

Please do not post commercial or public events where the nonprofit community is not the majority in attendance.

We will not give away or sell your personal information to anyone without your permission.  We don't sell lists as a general practice, but we do sometimes provide anonymous data to funders and our partners, such as number of website visitors, number of page views, number of nonprofits who use our service, etc. We might also add you to our mailing lists, but there will always be an Opt-Out link at the bottom of each email.

Web crawlers will pick up your email address, website address and other information posted to the calendar. Anything posted on the calendar will be considered "public" information.
