The happenings at Chapter meetings throughout the US and worldwide run in the Mart & Highlights.
Members and nonmembers can read these Chapter Highlights in the Mart & Highlight's current issue.
What's in a Highlight
Once the Chapter meeting ends, the reporter's work begins. First, they should confirm the spellings of any names before members and guests disperse. No one likes to see their name spelled incorrectly.
We have provided reporters with a format, containing common topics they may encounter during meetings. The topics serve as subheads in the report; if the reporter does not have content for a given topic, skip it and move to the next one. This helpful guide will make reporting easier.
Reports can be no longer than 600 words because of space constraints.
We provided this sample report as an example of a final report that is ready for publication.
Reporters should summarize the educational content of programs and workshops, as well as activities relating to Chapter and community-related horological projects to make for more interesting reading. All watch, clock, or other horological items discussed should be accompanied with brief descriptions. Reporters should also mention future meeting schedules, topics, and speakers.
Comments on social activities, auctions, and marts should be limited.
Photographs should be a minimum of 300 dpi or 1,000 kb in size. We use only one photograph per Chapter report.
All reporters must sign their name to their report, which will appear as a tagline at the end of the submission when it is printed in the Mart & Highlights.
We will edit each report for length, clarity, spelling, grammar, and style. Topics subject to editing include pricing, controversy, and discussion of non-horological items. Treasurer’s reports will not be included in the reports.
