1. Campus Managers are excellent people to approach with your ideas if your event audience is intended to be members of a specific campus. In these cases, the announcement thread can remain within the campus forum if desired.
2. Try to schedule events without overlapping other events
Forum, Corp Mail, and Calendar announcement guidelines:
Events and Education > Corporation Events > Combat Fleets, accessible to OOC alumni
Events and Education > Corporation Events, publicly accessible
All event thread subjects should start with the date of the event in EVE time using the YYYY.MM.DD HH:MM format, followed by the name of the event itself. For recurring events, please indicate the initial date and/or range of dates as appropriate. When the first post is edited the subject can be updated.
Good examples: (When adding to the calendar, simply remove the date and time from the title.)
[FLEET] 2014.07.26 18:00 NSC Intro Roam

Corp Mail functions as the primary method to alert thousands of E-UNI members about 1) major upcoming events with links to a forum thread or 2) urgently announce rescheduling/cancellations. Use only the Corp mailing list unless your event is relevant to members of other IVY Alliance members. Do not cross-post to both Corp and Alliance mailing lists. Try not to spam any mailing list with changes or replies. Creating appropriate hyperlinks in your mail is always appreciated.
The Calendar functions as the best way for members to see at a glance which events are scheduled. Sophomore members and above may create announcements as either Corp or Alliance as appropriate. Freshmen may ask in General or Campus chat for someone to make one for you. Alternatively, if you don't have a handy Sophomore around to ask, simply join the Events.
To hide an event from our public calendar view, check the "Important" box and it will be marked as Classified. It is not currently possible to delete events automatically posted to the public calendar. This is the reason why [CANCELLED] is the recommended way to communicate a change.
