Format

Ads are placed in the either the left or right column below our regular content. You are responsible for providing an image and providing copy. A small ad (160 x 160px) is just a square image. A medium (370 x 228px) or large (370 x 456px) ad consists of an image, a few lines of text, the relevant contact information of the advertiser and a link to an outside website. 

Process

Our Development Director makes the decision on whether to approve or decline your request. Our Secretary is the editor of the newsletter and our Communications Director moderates our social media outlets. Send a short email to development@rpcvw.org with a quick description of your organization and the promotion that you would like to run. CC secretary@rpcvw.org and communications@rpcvw.org. A response should come shortly.
