Create a +Page for your GDG chapter that follows a few simple conventions. See the GDG Silicon Valley +Page as one good example.
Required: +Page Title should be of the form: GDG <Chapter Name>
Required: In the About Section, we ask that the Introduction start with fully expanded chapter name and say something about the chapter. This is the one place where the GDG acronym is fully expanded rather than in the +Page Title.
Required: In the About Section, we ask that the Introduction end with the following disclaimer:
"Disclaimer: GDG <Chapter Name> is an independent group; our activities and the opinions expressed here should in no way be linked to Google, the corporation."
Required: In the About Section, the first recommended Link should point to developers.google.com/groups.
Required: In the About Section, at least one recommended Link for a GDG organizer Google+ profile of the form: Organizer: Name
Recommended: In the Posts Section, we recommend at least one post per chapter event. Although not required, we do encourage the posting of photos, videos, and/or links to other online articles about each event. For tracking purposes, we ask that you tag all GDG related posts with the #GDG hashtag. When posting about events, we ask that you use both the #GDG and the #Event hashtag in your Google+ post. That way, it is easy for people to search for information about GDG Events by searching for these two hashtags in combination.
Required: Include a Website link for an associated site for your chapter. If you don't have a formal website, you could link to your Google Group. Or you could link to the future location of your chapter page in the new directory. The address of every chapter plus page is in this format: https://developers.google.com/groups/chapter/YourPlusPageIdHere/. Simply insert your chapter +Page Id into that link format and it will point to the new location of your chapter landing page in the new directory once it has been added.
Recommended: Create a custom logo for your chapter. You can use this GDG Logo Generator. The logo generator allows you to use an arbitrary image you provide as the background for your custom chapter logo -- use something that represents your city or region. If you want full control of your custom logo design, then you can start with the high resolution vector graphics files attached to the GDG Logo Resources page on the wiki.
Optional: Include one or more contact email addresses for your chapter.
When you go to edit your About section, this is what you will see.
Required: Each organizer listed in the new GDG directory needs to have their own public Google+ Profile. This is so we can have their names listed in a section for chapter organizers on their chapter page in the directory. These should not be empty profiles meaning:
Before you submit your +Page to us to be included in the directory, make sure you have all the things we discuss above.
