Guidelines for Newsletter submissions

Send your article to:  newsletter@pminyc.org 

    • Specify the words "Newsletter request" in the subject line.
    • Submission Deadline: Last business day of the month. If that day is a holiday or the Eve of a holiday, then the deadline moves up to the 15th of the month.
    • Publication Schedule: Second Wednesday of the month (one week before Chapter meeting) No newsletter in July or August.
    • Include one to three high-resolution photos representing your event/topic or showing members or guests at your activity or event.
    • If you’re providing information about a past event, please include a brief recap (100-150 words).
    • Optional: Artwork. Communications will select images for you. However, if you'd like to suggest an image, your art needs to be a 300 dpi (dots per inch) high-resolution jpg, or eps file. An eps format is common for logos. You may submit an eps image. Do not submit a png image. Images should not contain lettering. Palettes should be neutral tones, i.e. blues, beige, tans, black and white because bold colors sometimes clash with other artwork on the site. 
    • Required dimensions for artwork or imagery you choose to submit are:
      • - Carousel banner = 1050 x 328 pixels
      • - Newsletter or eblast = 750 x 400 pixels
      • - Social media = 450 x 300 pixels
    • All articles are subject to editorial review before publication. If your article arrives by the Submission Deadline we can clear any revisions with you before publication.
    • Communications reserves the editorial right to amend content or images as needed. 

If your activity isn’t on the Events Calendar and it is a PMINYC event, please provide the following information to the Programs team at frank.saladis@pminyc.org:

How we use Newsletter articles to promote your event:

      • All newsletter articles include an appealing photo or graphic and a link to the main text on the chapter event calendar or website.
      • Each newsletter includes one or two Featured Contributor articles of up to 1,000 words. The first few sentences appear in the newsletter body with a link to the full article. If you submit a Featured Contributor article, ensure those first sentences entice the reader to click the “Read More” link.
