As an organizer, can I see all the events I have added to Conal Conference Alerts in one place?

For events that were added to Conal Conference Alerts on the old system, you will need to log in separately for each event.
On the new system it is possible to create a dashboard where all your events are listed together. To do this, create an organizer account, with a new user name and password.
