  • Moving forward, State and Regional Coordinators will also begin seeing "At Large" groups for each of their state(s) - a new catch-all group that will receive incoming new volunteers in that state that were not automatically assigned a chapter when they joined due to living far enough away from any active chapter or some other reason. For more information see this post in the SC Forums and the IT team will be unveiling additional details in the future.

Bugs Fixed
  • Events. Upcoming Events & Group Calendar Events created in your group will now display in the time zone selected when the event is created. The main CCL Events calendar for CCL National events will display the time in the user time zones.
