Designed to meet the needs of readers who stay informed on the go with their mobile devices or on their computers, the contemporary layout will quickly convey key information with new visual elements.
The updated CA Cities Advocate
will feature flexible blocks of stories broken into designated sections that highlight core areas of news. These will typically include:
- Take Action or Legislative Update;
- League News;
- Conferences & Education;
- Opportunities for Cities; and
- More News & Events.
Stories that appear in CA Cities Advocate
will continue to “live” on the League’s website where they can be printed, emailed or shared via Facebook and Twitter. Similar to the current format, newsletter story headlines will link to the full story on the League’s website. In addition, people interested in receiving the newsletter will still be able to self-subscribe at www.cacities.org/cacitiesadvocate
Publication will also change from the current schedule that allows for multiple issues each week to a once a week publication on Monday mornings or Tuesdays following a Monday holiday. Subscribers will start their week with news that is important to California cities in their inbox. During the week, the League will keep members updated on important developments through social media, Listserv messages and the Regional Public Affairs Managers.
Several times a year, a single story covering an urgent issue or update will go out to subscribers. These single story issues will cover topics such as the state budget, the end of the legislative session, Annual Conference wrap-up and other urgent news.
Look forward to the new CA Cities Advocate
in your inbox on Monday, Jan. 8, 2018.
