I belong to a group that puts on events. Different people organize different events, but we are all under the umbrella of one group name. We want to create a Google Calendar where we can all add events to it.

We first created a Google account, and shared the login information, and then started putting events on it. However, when we exported the calendar, we found that it showed up in other people's calendars under the name we use for the Google account, not the name of our group. We tried changing the name of the account to reflect the group name, but got a warning saying we were violating Google's naming policies.

The same warning said that if we wanted to create a calendar for a group, we should make a Google+ page, which I did, but I can't see any way of creating a calendar with it.

How do we get a calendar that is for our group, displays under our group name when people import it, and all our members can add events?

I think the key is that you need to create a Google login for your G+ page.

If you go to the "Settings" section for your G+ page, you should find a section called "Third Party Tools" and what looks like an email address. Set up a password for that, and you should be able to then log in to Google with those credentials and add things to a Google Calendar.
