Promote your event through an  

ABANA Constant Contact Email  


Send us the copy you'd like to include in the email. You can include images and links to your website.  Actually including links is the best use of Constant Contact because it lets you keep the email short but let those that are interested see the details.  You can also include an email address which will become a click on address to contact you.   



Promote your event with an  

ABANA Website Banner AD  


 You can promote your event with a Banner Ad on the ABANA  Website.  The Banner AD will link to the details of your event on your website.  Even if you don't have a Website, the Banner AD can be linked to a document that you provide.   Here's  what we need to send us:


A Banner AD that is100 pixels high by 600 pixels wide in jpeg format.


Here are several examples:






Send me your banner AD along with the link to the webpage where the details of the event are (or a pdf file if your group doesn't have a website) and I'll add them to the ABANA  Website.  If the Banner doesn't include the event date tell me when the event is over so I know when to remove the banner.  The banners are displayed randomly as you visit and navigate the ABANA website.    


Email ABANA your Banner and (Link or PDF file)  



Promote your event by putting it on

The ABANA Website Events Calendar    


  If you haven't seen it already, check it out:

 The ABANA Events Calendar

You need a short title for the event and then the details.  Again the details can include links and email addresses.



Email ABANA your Event for the Website Calendar   




Promote your event with in   

ABANA's Anvil's Ring  

Educational Opportunities & Calendar   


 You can list your event in the Educational Oppurtunities & Calendar  section of the Anvil's Ring.   There is a long lead time to get it published in the Magazine, so make sure you plan ahead and submit the event early enough to meet the deadlines:

Keep it short with a link and/or phone number/email address for details. 



Email ABANA your Event for the Anvil's Ring   


Promote your event through all Four Methods

(Or 3 or 2)   

 You can send us one email to ask us to promote your event.  Just be sure to include all the details we need as described above:
