How to Create a Public Announcement
Public announcements can be used to communicate important messages to members and non-members alike and can be especially helpful for any hurricane, snow, or health & safety announcements. All public home and section pages are equipped to display announcements in a prominent location of the screen. User can hide or close these announcements, but they will automatically re-appear after 4 hours to ensure no new announcements are missed.
