- 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.

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.
