Publicizing Your Event

The primary tool for publicizing campus events is the campus Web calendar. The Web calendar allows you to post events and then generate an email to share the event with relevant groups, including the media.

Publicizing campus events is the responsibility of the sponsoring organization. In cases where the speaker or event is likely to draw attention from the news media, the director of public affairs will manage all media relations related to the event.

Here is a contact list for some local news media calendars to which event listings may be sent:

Addison Independent (submit event)
calendar@sevendaysvt.com
Burlington Free Press Calendar (submit event)
Rutland Herald Calendar (submit event)

You must enter the information about your event into the Addison IndependentRutland Herald, and Burlington Free Press events calendars. The Burlington Free Press and the Rutland Herald will not post events information received via email. Use the links above to go to their events submission pages. On the Burlington Free Press submission page, click on "Add an Event" in the lower right-hand corner.
