Events+ requires a user to have a role in order to create an event, but roles are not assigned when

Events+ settings / Events Capabilities: A user must be assigned a role in order to create events.

Users are not assigned roles in BuddyPress when they register. Therefore, they can not create events.

It was suggested that plugin Access Manager would assign roles to users, but it does not.

Any suggestions how we can get this to work?

Thanks!
