Calendar & Submission Policy
The Lāna‘i Chamber of Commerce (LCC) Calendar is only for local or area events that provide value to the community, organized, hosted, sponsored or co-sponsored by entities like, our Members, non-profits, colleges or other community based organizations. Events may be hosted on Lāna‘i or elsewhere and can be open to the general public or be private events for designated groups or invitees.
LCC, at its discretion, may not accept event submissions from individuals or organizations not affiliated with the Lāna‘i Community.
Events must be submitted to the Calendar administrator or through the Submit Events form. Events that do not meet the Chamber Calendar requirements may be returned to the requestor for modifications. Solely personal events or solicitations without benefit to the community or to Chamber members are not allowed, and will be rejected. Please review the Chamber Calendar submission guidelines below for further information on the event submission approval process.
The Lāna‘i Chamber of Commerce reserves the right to approve, reject or make special considerations for any event submitted for the calendar.
The calendar has been designed to reflect immediate changes, corrections, and updates on events. Despite our best efforts, some information may be incorrect or we may not have information on an event you want to attend. We regret any inconvenience caused as a result.
Questions and comments about the policies and guidelines of the Chamber Calendar may be submitted to the Calendar administrator at [email protected]

Submission Best Practices
Posting an event online will help draw people and bring attention to your event. Make sure that you make the most of this opportunity. Below are a few best practices for submitting your event. Be sure to read the Submission Policy to ensure you meet all requirements before submitting an event.
When writing your title, make sure it can stand alone and people will get an understanding of what the event is, if only the title is displayed. Some versions of the calendar may display only the title without the description.
• School of Communications “I am Passionate about Storytelling” Writing Workshop
• By labeling it “School of Communications” and putting “I am Passionate about Storytelling” in quotation marks, it’s more clear that “I am Passionate” is a specific item for the School of Communications.
• Saying it’s a writing workshop shows that it’s about writing the commitment to action, rather than brainstorming or completing the action.
• “I am Passionate about Storytelling” Workshop
• No context about what “I am Passionate about Storytelling” is or what specifically the workshop is about.
• Learn to write your School of Communications “I am Passionate about Storytelling” story.
• This is rather informal, and would work better used as the description.
Put the most important information near the top, and focus on why people should want to come to your event. Most people skim the first few sentences.
• Keep sentences and paragraphs short and easy to scan
• Double check your spelling
• Spell out acronyms that may be unfamiliar to most audiences
• Indicate if RSVP is required
