Dear valued customer,

Our policy has been to provide customers with ground coffee when their coffee grinders undergo malfunctions. However, as more and more customers fail to remit their payment on time these days, we have determined to enforce a stricter policy in such cases.

Our new policy is effective as of September 3, 2007, and in details are as follows:

1. If a customer delays his or her payment for over 20 days and the machine does not work properly, we will stop supplying ground coffee. Instead, we will fix the unit, but the customer will be responsible for the expenses. Any payment related to these repairs will be reimbursed to the customer after he or she has remitted the unpaid balance in full.

2. A surcharge on accounts suspended for more than 60 days will be assessed.

Admittedly, this might sound a little extreme and may come as a surprise; nevertheless, we see no other alternative. As you know, we have always been committed to providing quality products and reliable service in order to meet your requirements. Without our patrons' cooperation and support, we are unable to continue to provide all of this.

In case of any inquiries concerning our new policy, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Greg Fournier 9:11 A.M. Welcome to RMP Financial Trust's live chat service. How can I help you?
Vivianne Gonyer 9:12 A.M. I was wondering whether an account I have with your bank still works. I stopped using it when I moved overseas, but I was hoping to revive it when I return home permanently in a few weeks.
Greg Fournier 9:12 A.M. May I have the number on your ATM card?
Vivianne Gonyer 9:13 A.M. That's the problem. I didn't keep my ATM card because I didn't think I'd need it.
Greg Fournier 9:14 A.M. I see. For security reasons, I need to match your name with an ATM card number.
Vivianne Gonyer 9:14 A.M. I thought that might be the case. Could you tell me what your policy is regarding inactive accounts?
Greg Fournier 9:15 A.M. What kind of account did you have?
Vivianne Gonyer 9:16 A.M. It was a checking account, and the last time I used it must have been over two years ago.
Greg Fournier 9:17 A.M. Oh, in that case, it's probably expired. Checking accounts are closed if they have not been used for more than two years.
Vivianne Gonyer 9:17 A.M. OK. Can you tell me what my options are at this point?
Greg Fournier 9:18 A.M. Well, you could open a new account, one that doesn't expire for five years. Or you could open another checking account. Whichever you prefer.
Vivianne Gonyer 9:20 A.M. I would prefer the latter. Can I do that online? Or should I call someone from my branch and have them open one for me over the phone?
Greg Fournier 9:20 A.M. I'm sorry, but they will need to verify your identity, and you have to be there for that.
Vivianne Gonyer 9:20 A.M. OK, then. Thanks for your help.

21. At 9:13 A.M., what does Ms. Gonyer mean when she writes, "That's the problem"?

Going International: A Marketing Strategies Conference.

An information program sponsored by the National Student Marketers Association 

Are you ready to go global?

Recent research has shown that over half of medium-sized firms are looking to expand their business into the overseas market within the next five years. Is your business one of the majority? You may think you have all the tools necessary to go global, or that your product can sell itself-no matter what part of the world it's in. It has been proven, time and time again that our successful strategies for domestic marketing are, all too often, a tremendous failure when used abroad. That's the reason so many companies have failed, and that is the reason you should know better than to follow in their footsteps. The National Student Marketers Association is sponsoring a must-see event for any business owner planning to expand their product lines internationally.

The two-day conference will enlighten you and your employees on the following topics:

-Spotting your weaknesses ... before your customers do!

-Understanding culture - and using it to your advantage.

-Legal and taxation issues. Don't let your company suffer!

-Dealing with international customers. How to execute appropriate service plans.

-Developing & implementing a global marketing strategy. 

If you are a small or mid-sized firm owner or CEO, you must attend this conference! Cost is $250 per person. Discounts are available for groups of 3 or more. Total includes six meals and all materials. Visit www.NSMA org to register. Space is limited, so sign up today!

31. Who is the target audience for this announcement?
32. According to the information, what can lead to failure?
33. What topic will NOT be discussed during the conference?

Proposal for funding of new communications studio at Weston College in Burmingham, Alabama

Background: Weston College has offered matriculating students as well as statewide high school students opportunities to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to become successful in a variety of disciplines within the mass communications field for 20 years. With a small communications program of 100 students, Weston is able to provide students with one-on-one attention and instill program participants with a wide spectrum of educational facilities in order to promote a well-rounded student population. The private college receives less than 5% of its annual income from public funds and mostly relies on private endowments for scholarship and facilities.

Proposal Project: The mass communications department, by request of the students, has decided to create a local television station which would provide community members an outlet for public service announcements, calendars and promotion of non-commercial, not-for-profit events. The station would be entirely student-run with the exception of school advisors and mentors.

Needs: To maintain a competitive status within the educational community. Weston College must keep up with technological advancements made in the communications industry. In order to continue to draw in top achieving students, the school should be able to continually provide students with all the educational facilities larger universities are offering without increasing matriculation costs.

Donor Benefits: The Weston College production studio will honor the program's top donors by using their name on the building and they will be recognized during a ribbon cutting ceremony at the time of the studio's grand opening. Other donors will be recognized publicly when the station is up and running.

35. Why does the college want to build this facility?
36. How will donations from individuals be used?
37. What will the college do to thank the highest donors?

The announcement comes at the end of a successful year, with sales in the fourth quarter surpassing those in the third quarter by 15 percent.

Upon completion, the new factory will be situated near Beijing, China. It will be First Global's largest and one of six of its facilities located in the East Asian region. -[3]-.

It is hoped that the new factory will boost productivity by approximately 20 percent. -[4]-. Construction on the plant will begin in spring of next year.

Dear Customer Service Office,

I am a new customer at your bank. I opened an account with you last month, and I have recently received my first monthly statement. I find that there is a service charge on three of the checks that I wrote. I understood that this account had free checking, so I was surprised to see this charge. Perhaps it is a mistake. I am enclosing a copy of the statement. Please clarify this matter for me.

Dear Mr. Gardner,

We recently received your letter asking about charges to your account. While it is true that your account has free checking, some restrictions apply. You may write five checks a month free of charge. After that you must maintain a minimum average balance of $600 in your account in order to continue with free checking. Since your average account balance last month was only $435, you were entitled to only five free checks. A service charge was applied to the checks you wrote beyond that minimum. I hope this explanation is satisfactory to you.

Let me take this opportunity to make sure that you are aware of other services you can get with your account. You can arrange to have your monthly utility bills deducted from your account. You are also eligible to borrow small amounts of money from the bank at a low interest rate. If you are interested in these or an other services, please visit us at the bank, and an officer will be happy to explain all the details to you. Thanks you for being a National Bank of August customer.

Re: June 25th Annual General meeting
I know that you will be unable to attend this year's meeting on the 25th, so I am sending you the agenda now. Please take a look at it before the meeting and give me your opinion on the items.

We have decided to resurface the tennis courts and need to choose from three contractors. I will send you their price lists and a voting form later. Everyone at the meeting will have a chance to vote. As you know, we have suffered a lot of broken windows recently. I would appreciate it if you could fax me your ideas on how to deal with this problem. The fourth item on the agenda refers to renting equipment. We will limit rentals to one hour on weekends and two hours during the week. Only members will be able to rent equipment on weekends. This brings us to the next item: all members will be required to show their membership card in order to use the sports center at a discounted price.

Please send me your thoughts as soon as possible, and I will talk to you in person when you get back from your vacation.
