JEA dates and deadlines 2023-24

JEA October 2023 calendar

JEA has created a calendar with key dates and deadlines, available to import into your online calendar.

The import will work with Google, iCal, Outlook and others.

We recommend creating a new calendar in your calendar system and titling it “JEA calendar” or “JEA events.” Then when you import the calendar file, all the JEA dates and deadlines will be a separate color and can be viewed or hidden.

This import is not continually syncing with the JEA calendar — meaning date or deadline changes will not be automatically updated in your calendar. You may also add or delete events within the calendar to suit your preferences.
