Set a date and time. Make sure it works for at least a few group members so that multiple people can help out. At least two weeks is a good lead in time.

Schedule your event on Zoom so that you have a link to share with supporters who are interested in participating.

Create your event on Action Centre so that you can promote your welcome night and collect and follow-up RSVPs.
