Definitely - can add them anytime.
To add new event items you log into drupal with your osgeo user id:
Then add new content through the menu system. e.g.
If "Event" is shown as an option there, then you already have permissions. Let me know.
cc'ing Frank since he and I have traditionally done the event postings. Adding another person or two would help, we just have to make sure we don't step on each others toes. We usually cc: each other with any responses to emails from event owners, to let each other know who is posting the item. If that makes sense...

>>> We've kept the current events listing on osgeo.org/news to only include events pertaining to open source or where OSGeo will be present (more or less). We could add a field to the new event form then filter using it for the rss feed (or for a new feed). I think we have good flexibility on this front! We'd have to open up the ability for more folks to add to the list of events.
