The Chenango County Historical Society (CCHS) recently commemorated “National Author’s Day,” celebrating regional writers who contributed to the 10th anniversary issue of the Journal of the Chenango County Historical Society printed earlier this year. This commemorative publication featured a variety of scholarly articles, with topics ranging from “Anna B. Smith for Sherriff” to “Emancipation Day in Greene,” and “A Profile of Preston Manor” to “When Arks Were Built in Sherburne,” among others.
CCHS is currently accepting proposals for a qualified vendor to create and design the next three issues of this annual publication. The successful proposal will provide the best overall value and results for CCHS. Goals for these publications are to diversify represented locations and entry topics, increase awareness of the organization, and present a professional, modern image.
The selected vendor will be responsible for proofreading all Journal submissions in addition to the design and layout of the publications for production with the approval of CCHS. The vendor will provide a mock-up of the pages where changes and corrections can be made prior to printing, as well as the final ready-to-print proof. The proposal should include proofs and any other materials the vendor determines are necessary to complete the job.
“This year’s refresh of our annual Journal provided a unique opportunity to update this beloved publication,” said Joseph Fryc, CCHS operations manager. “We look forward to working with an editor who will provide the best overall value and results for our organization over the next three years.”
A complete request for proposals can be found online at www.ChenangoHistorical.org/RFP.
