As an open collective who aims be as inclusive as possible, it is a good idea to promote our meetings and other events widely. Here are some goods ways to do so ... ( Bold should be considered as good as compulsory.)
Oxford IMC main list - the general Oxford IMC list - imc-oxford [at] lists.indymedia.org
Oxford IMC editorial list - Editorial list of Oxford IMC - imc-oxford-features [at] lists.indymedia.org
Oxford activism list - Announce list for events in Oxford - oxford-activism [at] lists.riseup.net
Daily Info - A generic what's on guide for Oxford. Good for reaching out to a wider groups of people who may not already be connected to the Oxford activist scene. Good to get events in as soon as possible so they can appear in the printed edition. A 10 word description can be added for free. http://www.dailyinfo.co.uk/
Status Net can be used to promoted events (which will then also appear on Twitter). The 'tweetmaster' will often pick up events from the Oxford IMC calendar - or can be contacted on oximc [at] riseup.net. You can see the Oxford IMC Status Net stream here - https://indy.im/oximc
Don't forget you can mention meetings to your friends, random strangers, etc.
Tips & tricks
Write descriptions of events without assuming that people know what what Oxford IMC is (i.e. don't use jargon like IMC!).
Promote events well in advance (so people that plan ahead get it in their diaries) and again just before the event (so people remember to come).
Include a link to the Oxford IMC site in descriptions.
Include an end time - people like to know what they are getting in to before they come along (especially if they have other commitments).
Try to use a phrase similar to "everybody welcome".
Include comprehensive details (treat this like a checklist - it's really easy to miss something off when you already know all the details)
Title (e.g. Oxford Indymedia Meeting).
Location (and remember not everybody will know where OARC is!).
