Your resort is the ideal place for our company, Software.com, to hold the next meeting at. We are planning to have the meetings either on April 20-24 or July 10-14. Now we realize that one of these dates is between off-peak times, I was wondering if there were any good room rates during those days. If so please send me information about those rooms.

Thank you Sincerely, Edwing Llangari Planning Committee Software.com Assignment 7.4 • Write a e-mail request refusal, you are the manager. – Two staff members have asked you to copy the latest version of Adobe Photoshop. Explain why you cant do this, Include: • It’s a licensed program protected by law, against job policies, and legal law. • Software companies would go out of business • You wouldn’t mind showing them how to use it, but not copied. • Write to robcc.com and [email protected]@eecc.com To: [email protected] and [email protected] From: Edwing Llangari [email protected] Subject: Re: Software Request Robert and Jose, As you know, the software Adobe Photoshop is the program used by all of our staff members. It is a very expensive licensed program. This means that the program is protected by the law. It is against the law to make copies of the program for any reason. Reprographics Department is a company that does not, and will not violate any laws. For this reason and many more, I am sorry to say that I cannot authorize your request. Software companies make their money by selling their product to customers such as ourselves. Their companies would go out of business if people burned their programs all the time. The law also makes it illegal to make copies of programs, and selling them. Our software can be installed in up to five computers here at the office, and I am more than happy in showing people how the department uses the software. If you need to use the program don’t hesitate to ask and I will set up an appropriate time for you to use the software here at the office. I look forward to helping you! Thank you for understanding. Edwing Llangari Assignment 8.5 • You are the program Chairman for the Associated student Organization at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. – Your task: • Write a persuasive letter to Suze Orman to take part as the keynote speaker at the special graduation convocation. • Include: $1000 as honorarium • Include why Orman should come, how would it benefit her? • Mention something positive about her promotion for her new book The Money Book for the Young. • Date is May 26, Ask for a response as soon as possible. Ms. Suze Orman P.O Box 4502 New York, NY 10014 Dear Ms. Orman, It is an honor to be writing to a well known financial celebrity as yourself. Your work and accomplishments have really inspired my students. Your latest book, The money book for the young, fabulous and broke, will be another success among many college students and people in general. We admire your work. Ms. Orman, I understand you have many years of experience and expertise in the field. You have worked very hard to get to where you are. I am the Program Chair of the Associated Student Organization at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. I believe my students are not ready to go out into the real world to make financial decisions. They have spent many hours in classrooms, reading books, and writing papers. However there is one thing that books can’t do, and that is to actually help them make good financial decisions. I also understand that one has to work his or her way to get to where you are at. However, most students who graduate are not ready for the real world. Students spend many hours in classrooms, reading books, and writing papers. One thing a book can’t teach them though is how to make real life financial decisions. Through the years the students will gain experience and more knowledge in the field and will learn how to make good decisions. They will work their way up to become good, experts in their field such as yourself. One thing I believe that can give them a head start into their careers would be to listen to a great financial speaker. They will gain knowledge of what to expect and how to start. On behalf of the Associated Student Organization at the University of Nevada, I would like to invite you to be the keynote guest speaker at special graduation convocation. The graduation date is May 26. As special thanks we would also be giving you $1,000 as an honorarium. The students would love to hear from someone with great knowledge like you before they head out into the world. To help you with the organization of your speech, the speech is to be not very long. What we are most interested in is you informing our students of what to expect when they go out to their jobs. Enclosed with this letter I have attached a list of a few things that I would like to be covered. We are really looking forward to hearing from you, and hope you will accept this invitation. We would like to hear from you by May 1, so we can start making arrangements. We look forward to hearing from you! Sincerely, Edwing Llangari Program Chair, ASO This was my final project!
