When creating an event in BNI Connect, the time zone can be specified for start and end times. However, the time zone data is not shown on regional websites once the event is published. This is a huge problem when event creators don't specify in the event description what time zone the event is in. Events created in Eastern time often have users arrive 1, 2, or 3 hours late to events (not acceptable).
Even when looking at the events area in BNI Connect itself, the event's time doesn't reflect a time zone unless you click the event to see the full details of the event (even then the end-user still has to calculate time-zone math to get it into their schedule correctly).
What would be ideal is that when viewing any event on a region's website events page, the event start time would reflect the local time of the viewer.
This would eliminate the requirement of the event creator to specify in the event description the time zone math, and eliminate the requirement for the end-user to perform any time zone math.
