Post an event
Any page with an events listing (they are by region, like this: http://publiclab.org/wiki/gulf-coast) has a "post an event" button in the sidebar. This system isn't fully built out yet, but those events are then listed in that sidebar. Most chapter pages have such an events sidebar.
We also have a Google calendar, which is how you get listed on the http://publiclab.org/events page.
