Progress Report, Sample One

DATE: September 28, 1992
FROM: Jersey Manu
TO: Dr. Jensen
SUBJECT: Progress on faculty workshop plans

Work Completed

Plans for the faculty workshop on October 12 are nearly complete. The committee met on September 19. We discussed what kind of subject we wanted and came up with several names of possible speakers.

Since then, Greg Stephens has contacted Stan Brannan, president of Genesis Technology Center in Wichita. He has agreed to come. Since then we have sent him a letter confirming the speaking engagement, and Greg Stephens has talked to him personally. He will be flying in on October 12.

I contacted John Campbell at Boeing. He got in touch with Al Andrews in their CAD-CAM division. Mr. Andrews has confirmed that either he or Tom McDabitt from his department will come to speak. A letter has been sent to him as well confirming the speaking engagement. Both letters were mailed Tuesday, September 27.

I have enclosed a copy of the letter sent to both Andrews and Brannan. We also included a schedule for the workshop and directions to the campus, copies of which are also attached to this memo.

Work Scheduled

There are a few things that remain to be done.

I have a few questions for you.
  1. Will your office be responsible for sending out announcements, or do you want us to do that? We do have some papers from Genesis that could be sent with the announcements. These would help people know what Genesis is. I've enclosed one.

  2. Will someone from your office meet Mr. Brannan or should one of us? You'll notice that my letter suggests that Mr. Andrews go directly to your office if he arrives at noon.

  3. Will you or Tim make the opening comments and introductions? Please see the enclosed schedule.

  4. How do we make arrangements to have coffee and rolls available in G.T. 103?

I think this will be an interesting workshop and am confident that everything is working out nicely. I don't foresee any problems that would throw off our plans.
