The Value of Your Input

By Anna Simet | May 30, 2014

This week, we held our August content meeting with members of Biomass Magazine’s new editorial board. During these monthly meetings, we examine industry news of last several weeks—in the power, thermal , biogas, pellets and advanced biofuel and chemical sectors—pitch story ideas, hash them out, add to them or nix them all together.

We put together our first editorial board over a year ago, with a hunch that having individuals who are out there working in the fields we cover every day join us in the meetings would add so much value to them.  

And let me tell you, we were right. They’re able to tell us if we hit a story right on the head, or if we’ve pitched something that isn’t of huge importance. They suggest slightly different angles to take, help us narrow down our choices when we have too many, and lots of times even have ideas of their own—stories that haven’t yet reached our radar.

Our goal at Biomass Magazine is to bring to you the stories you want to read. We want to provide you with that news you’ve been waiting for, we want to surprise you with interesting facts that you didn’t know. We want to keep you up-to-date with what’s going on in your sector—policy, grant opportunities, new trends, etc.—but there are always stories to tell that we may not know about yet.

Can you think of an example? If so, we want to hear about it.

And if you’re wondering who these editorial board members might be, when you pick up the August issue of Biomass Magazine, the equipment issue, flip to the masthead page, and there you’ll find them.   

 On that note, I want to extend a huge thanks to those individuals. We’re very proud, excited and humbled to have you join us.
