We are going to record our local events this year in HD. They will playback in HD on one channel and SD on another.
What is the best way to export them from premiere to playback on a DVD for SD playback?

Pick the appropriate preset under the MPEG2 DVD export format. You can make these selections when you export from PPRO (File > Export > Media), but if you have CS6 the I recommend that you take advantage of some new features in AME.
1) In the Preset Browser, click the folder icon with the plus sign to create a custom preset folder.
2) Find the two presets you want to use in the System Presets section (hint: typing "DVD" or "Blu" in the Preset Browser's search field will get to them in a blink.)
3) Drag each preset from the System area to the folder you created in Step 1. This creates an alias to the system preset (italics denote that it's an alias). Or, if you want to customize any settings, Alt+Drag the system preset. On drop, the settings dialog will pop up. Tweak the settings, give it a name, and click Okay.
Using custom preset groups has several advantages. When you drag a sequence from PPRO, a comp from AE, or a clip file from a file browser and drop it on the folder in AME, a batch job is set up with an output for each preset in the group. As an added bonus, dragging and dropping is the only way to export multiple sequences or comps at once. Custom groups also give you a way to organize presets to your way of thinking in case the organization of the System Presets tree doesn't work for you.
And on a related note, when you're encoding a given source to multiple settings, using AME's new batching capabilities saves you time because parallel encoding is more efficient, decoding the source just once for multiple outputs.
