Runoff is our digital newsletter with circulation to over 1000 Branch members, affiliates and friends via email. It is also posted on the CWRA website for public viewing. The branch plans to publish Runoff three times yearly in February, June and October.
We welcome the submission of water resources related articles for our feature articles. A feature article is different from a project profile in that no company name or logo should be highlighted in the feature article. The writer and his/her company are acknowledged as the author. In a project profile, both the company name and the logo may be clearly visible.
For each Runoff issue, we will select 2 to 4 articles to publish. If your article is selected, a free business card sized advertisement space for you or your company will be provided in appreciation. The articles are selected based on our expected interest to our members. If the topic is not time sensitive and we receive more than 4 suitable articles, we may (with your permission) publish the article in a later issue.
Other requirements for the feature article include the following:
- The article should reflect current issues or changes in water resources in BC.
- Topic must be of interest to our members.
- The article must be informative about water resources issues and may be technical in nature, but the article must not promote a company or a product.
- The author is personally responsible for the accuracy of the article.
Articles must be submitted to the editor electronically (in both MS Word and PDF fi le formats) and should include a brief biography of the author(s) and contact information. Note that the biography will not be published. Th e article should be typed in Times New Roman 11 pt and single spaced. Articles must be less than 1000 words and may include photos or other graphics. The article including all graphics cannot exceed 3 letter sized pages. All graphics must be captioned and sources should be cited for any photographs. Runoff reserves the right to edit with respect to length, clarity and conformity with the editorial guidelines.
