Phil Powers of Engineering got his transfer order late last week and will be transferred to the Dunkirk factory at the end of next month. If there were a Who’s Who for our headquarters here in Summerville, Phil would certainly be in it. He has been a mentor to many of us during his eight years here. For those of us who had him as our supervisor, he always shared his expert knowledge gladly and delighted us with his sense of humor. We’re having a good-bye party for Phil on Friday, November 13. May Honda, who will be taking Phil’s place, is organizing the party. Please call her at extension 2030 by November 5 if you’d like to join in Phil’s send-off.

The picnic is one of the best ways to get acquainted with coworkers and their families, so we’re hoping all of you will attend!
Kate Kapur and I are in charge of the event this year. Thanks to many of you who have come forward to help us, most of the arrangements have already been made. However, we are still looking for volunteers to coordinate games for kids and to order beverages.
If you’d be willing to help, please let both Kate and I know by April 25. In the meantime, feel free to contact us with any questions.

Subject: Delay in renovations
The lobby renovations that were scheduled to begin this week have been delayed due to one of the contractors pulling out at the last minute. We are currently consulting with the construction firm to hire another contractor, but we’ve been informed that this could take at least a week. All the equipment and supplies to be used for the work have already been placed in the lobby and must remain there for the time being. We’re sorry for the inconvenience but kindly bear with us for a while longer. In the interim, please use the back entrance. We will keep you posted on further developments.
Renovations to the second and third fl oors of our offices will begin as scheduled on January 20. On the second fl oor, two conference rooms (203 and 204) will be consolidated into one large conference room, and a nap corner will be installed toward the back of the employee lounge. Ten new cubicles will be installed on the third fl oor in the section that currently houses the supply room. The construction crew will use the north elevator during the renovation; we ask that you use only the south elevator until renovations are complete. Also, restrooms on the third floor will be inaccessible during the first week. Renovations are scheduled for completion on February 13.
WE HAVE A NEW COPY MACHINE!
It’s nice to finally have a copy machine that works. Our last two machines were rather quirky and had to be serviced all too often. We decided to change manufacturers and to go for top of the line. The CopyMax 2000 is a pleasure to use but don’t overdo it—remember we’re trying to save paper. Each of you will be issued control cards that are to be inserted in the small scanner on top of the copy machine each time you use it. Copies can be made only when the cards are inserted. All the data at the time copies are made, including the number of copies, date and time will be recorded and carefully managed in a database. You may pick up your control cards from Jason in Supplies any time after February 11.

Re: Office supplies
There’s a new person in charge of office supplies. Monica Regis replaced Carla Yu as of Monday, February 10. Monica is the one to contact if you’re in need of anything from copy paper and printer cartridges to staples and paper clips. I recommend getting in touch with her with your orders well in advance of things running out as ordering supplies and having them delivered to the office can sometimes take up to 10 days. Our usual supplier has been short of certain printer cartridges recently, and filling these orders may take even longer.

Subject: Trip report
I heard from Ben that you are extremely busy now, filling in for Lucy who suddenly had to quit. However, I’d like to remind you that I need to have the expense report from the trip you made to Sydney earlier this month by Monday morning. Otherwise, there’s a chance you won’t be reimbursed during April. Be sure to attach all receipts, including those from all the meals you had during your trip, to the expense report. I also need a trip report from you, but that can come later; judging from your current circumstances, I’d be willing to wait until the first week of next month.

Subject: London trip
Could you please reserve a fl ight for my trip to London next month and arrange for accommodations in the vicinity of Southland Bank? I plan to be there from October 7 to 10. Ideally, the hotel would have a business center, but I would settle for wireless Internet access. It would be great if you could fi nd a hotel with a gym.
Also, could you please make arrangements for a guided bus tour of the city on the 9th? I would prefer the tour to be over by around 3 p.m. as I’m having dinner with clients in the evening. Let me know what kinds of tours are available.
Contact me if you need more information. As always, thank you for help.

Most of us will be attending the trade show at Borne Center on the 18th, so the meeting scheduled for that day has been postponed to the 20th. I reserved the main conference room for the 20th, but it is only available from 4 to 5 p.m. We have just one hour, which means all of us should review the agenda thoroughly before the meeting so we can cover everything effi ciently. I’ve attached a draft agenda to this e-mail. Make any additions you feel are necessary and send it back to me by tomorrow evening.

Subject: Summer Digital Media Workshop
A digital media workshop will be held during the week of July 1. Several experts in the field will be invited to instruct us on how to use digital media for better work efficiency and product promotion. Of particular interest this year is the fact that a large chunk of time will be allotted to copyright and intellectual property issues. Though probably unintended, copyright infringement has become rampant and is something that must be avoided at all costs.
Although the deadline is June 25, space is limited, so signing up early is recommended. I will be away during the last half of June, so be sure to cc your attendance requests to Lyle Grodin.
Annual Career Development Seminar
Stop, Think, Advance: Rethinking Your Career Path
In response to popular demand, the annual career development seminar will be offered again this year. The seminar comprises several workshops that offer intensive training relative to various stages of career development. Attendance is voluntary except for secondyear employees who are required to attend the series of workshops offered on the first day.
Details concerning the seminar will be e-mailed to all staff by April 10. The deadline for signing up is Monday, April 15. Past seminars have provided invaluable guidance; don’t miss the chance to join and learn what you can do to move forward in your career.
I’d like to remind you about next week’s training session for the new inventory control software. I will be conducting the session with assistance from Terry Williams of Oasis Software, which is the company that created this pioneering system. Controlling inventory has been a challenge for our firm, and this new software is expected to help us manage our inventory properly and efficiently. There are copies here of the instruction manual for the software. Take a copy with you when you leave and review it so you have some idea of what you’ll be working with next week.
