Newsletter/Web Advertising FAQ Complete the ad contents AND insertion order forms, and then e-mail them to employmentads_@_gfoa.org. The ad contents form must be e-mailed; the insertion order can be e-mailed or faxed to GFOA, Attn: Employment Ads at 312/977-4806.
Please use the following links:
|Where can I obtain the Ad Contents form and the Insertion Order Form? |
Ads are added every Thursday; please send both forms in the Friday before.
| ||$150.00 for active GFOA members |
| ||$250.00 for associate GFOA members |
| ||$500.00 for nonmembers |
These costs are for a listing that runs for four consecutive weeks.
If your ad does not follow our format and/or is not e-mailed, using our ad contents form, you will be charged an additional $150 editing charge.
|How do I know if I’m a member? |
You must indicate if you are an individual or agency member on your insertion order form (it will be verified). INCOMPLETE ORDERS WILL NOT BE PUBLISHED.
|I’m an ad agency, but the advertiser is a member – which rate do we use? |
If the advertiser is a member, they get the member rate. There is no agency discount.
|Is there an agency discount? |
We prefer prepayment by credit card or check. But if that is impossible, you must supply a Purchase Order in order to be billed.
If paying by check, you must send the check and completed forms to the GFOA’s lock box (GFOA, Dept. 77-3076, Chicago, IL 60678-3076). But please also fax a copy of the check and the order forms (Ad Contents and Insertion Order) to GFOA at 312/977-4806 to avoid missing the deadline.
|Can I have it just posted on the Web, not in the Newsletter? |
Yes, but you must indicate “Web only posting” on your Insertion Order form AND provide the date that you want to have the ad posted. The charge is still the same - there is no fee discount for Web posting only.
|How long will it be on the Web? |
Online postings follow the same schedule as the GFOA Newsletter publication dates.
Please refer to the 2012 Publication Dates/Deadlines for specific publication dates.
|How many lines can it be? |
Refer to the Ad Contents Form.
|Where can I see a sample ad? |
See GFOA’s Web site under “Employment Ads” for examples.
|Where can I see my published ad? |
You may view your employment ad on the GFOA Web site .
Ads will be posted here on the publication date and not before then.
|Can you call me to verify that you received my ad? |
We apologize, but due to the heavy volume of ads submitted, the GFOA is unable to confirm receipt of ads. All completed orders will be prepared for publication as directed.
|Can I see the ad before it runs? |
We don’t normally do that, but if you put a note on your Ad Contents form that you want to see the ad before it runs and give us your e-mail address, we will make sure to e-mail you a draft before it is published.
