Communications

Communication for branches

In an effort to coordinate the way we communicate our programs, events, and grants for the Division of Early Childhood we ask that you use the Communication Request Form for assistance with your communication needs.

Submission Guidelines for Newsletter

Your submission must be received by the IMPACT Newsletter headingabove deadlines in order to be included in newsletters.

Submissions will be edited for length, style, grammar and punctuation.

Consider these tips for writing your newsletter submission:

  • Headline: Write an action-oriented headline to draw readers in. For example: “Register Now for Communications Training on March 20” vs. “Communications Training”
  • Clarity: Try not to use jargon or technical language in your submissions. These terms may be commonplace among your team but might not resonate with others. Spell out all acronyms.
  • Audience: Tailor your submission for the appropriate audience. For example, if you submit to Partners, be sure your message directly impacts and targets child care providers and center staff member.
  • Length: Keep it short – the word limit for each entry is 250 words. Include only important, need-to-know information (i.e. who, what, when, where, why and how).
