2011 Electronic Presbyterian Planning Calendar

Beta version

June 1 ­– December 31, 2011

Thank you for agreeing to beta-test the “first edition” of the Presbyterian Planning eCalendar! We hope you find it easy to use and helpful in your ministry. We also look forward to your comments and suggestions.

The PC(USA) 2011 eCalendar comes in two formats: iCal (.ics) and vCal (.vcs). These are the two standard data formats for most computers, smart phones and personal digital assistants. Most newer computers and devices can import iCal files. If your application can import either format, the iCal (.ics) version is preferred. If you don’t see your calendar application listed in our instructions, check the application’s documentation to see which formats it can import.
