Townsquare is built around events, which are attended by volunteers. A session is a record of volunteer attendance or participation in an event.
Townsquare assumes you collect participation information with a sign-in sheet or have a person managing check-in. Using the default roles, only "volunteer manager" and "staff" roles may create events or track participation.
