Staff/Faculty CollaborationEdit

Here's the email I sent to Carl Coffey and Gary Kriesge, who are both members of SCUP on 10/5--

  "Hi, I have recently been learning about an event known as Campus Sustainability Day (CSD),
http://scup.org/csd/4/ and have been working with others on campus to bring this day, and event, to 
HSU each year, starting with this year.
  We are working on several arenas to make an amazing day, but the reason I'm writing is because we
are interested in broadcasting the CSD webcast as the cornerstone part of our event. However,
there's a fee of $325 to participate in the webcast, which drops down to $265 for SCUP members.  In
searching through their website, I noticed both of your names (in addition to Bob Schulz) in
their directory for Humboldt State. Does that mean you are both members of this organization, or
that our school is a member, and we would thus be able to qualify for the reduced member rate in
broadcasting this event? 
  That's my main question for now.  I'd love to hear any thoughts you all might have on the event
at some point as well."

Here's the next email I would like to send to them:

   "There are also related questions I want to ask.  For example--if there are venues through the
University proper we could go through to pay for this webcast, and possibly also for other related
parts of the day.
  We are in contact with both Associated Students (AS) and the Residence Hall Association (RHA) for
funding, but I would love to see the buy-in from the staff of the university, in addition to the
students.
  I realize that will be a harder sell, and that's why I would like to try to make a case for it,
because I feel that will make the event all the more powerful.
  And just to give you a heads-up--
As part of this day, we would like to have a roundtable discussion, possibly on the quad, with
administrators, faculty and students of HSU sitting in, and giving their thoughts on the event's
theme: "Where Is Your Campus On the Continuum of Integrated Sustainability Planning?"
  There wouldn't really be any planning required for participants, but instead show up, and share
your thoughts.

Feel free to edit that email before I send it, and put any thoughts you may have, here, or under the 'Discussion' tab may be more appropriate!

What/Why/How/Who/etc..Edit

Remember, this is meant to be a living document, feel free to add to it and edit as you see appropriate! Got some questions? Thoughts, comments, concerns that don't really fit into that attempt of an outline above, feel free to throw them down here, be as free, and free-form, as you wish!--
