|Community Home||Chapter Home Pages||Event Pages|
The primary landing for the community. May feature upcoming events, regional groupings for quick visibility into various chapters, and a link to join.
The primary landing for a particular chapter. May feature upcoming and past events, photos, and a link to join the chapter, and more.
The primary landing for a particular event. May feature event details, agenda, host information, a link to RSVP, and a link to join (if virtual).
