Why do I receive calendar invitations that don't work ever since I changed my UCSBnetID?

This happens because the event creator invited you using your old Connect address, <oldnetid> If they have used the old address to invite you in the past, it still exists in their Contacts and was available to select in the "Add: Guests" field. The invitation you receive is non-functioning because you are logged into Connect as <newnetid> For more infomation, please see Changing My UCSBnetID.

If a person has more than one address, which one do I invite to a meeting?

When creating meetings, if a person has more than one address, ALWAYS select their address. If a person has more than one address, either will work. If a person does not have an address, they do not have a Connect Calendar account, and selecting their department address will send a meeting invitation email.

Can I give my personal google calendar access to a Connect Calendar?

Yes, you can "share" your Connect Calendar with anyone who has an address. You can even allow them to "make changes" to your primary calendar. NOTE: although you can assign "make changes" for a custom calendar you created on your account or for a resource, the account will be able to view but not create or modify events on these types of calendar.
