Write him a letter informing him that he has been nominated for president-elect of CSM. You realize that Garrett is busy in his new position at Orbitz Unlimited but is highly deserving of the office in CSM. This position involves much public relations work. You may remind Garrett that he will have a year to prepare for the presidency. As benefits, both Garrett's contacts and reputation in the business community would be increased. Further, officers do not pay dues. Write a letter to Garrett convincing him that he should accept the nomination. Capture the

The nominating committee, therefore, shows its appreciation to you for this service by nominating you president-elect. 1 Build the
Interest POOR WAY This responsibility should not be taken lightly because it will take many hours each week to carry out all the duties. I know you are busy with new position at Batteries Unlimited, but all of us have a lot of work. One of the primary functions of the office is to improve the public relations between our organization and the community. I know you can do an effective job with this.

Why haven't you made any payments on the home theater system you purchased from us on May 19? We rely on customers making their payments so we can pay our bills.

If we don't receive payment immediately, we will be forced to take an action against you. You were lucky we extended credit so you could buy the home theater system because your credit was very shaky.

We need to receive a payment within a week, or we will take you to court to get our money, and you will be sorry you didn't pay earlier. GOOD WAY Dear Mr.Cruz

You must take pride in your home because you chose our top-of-the-line home theater system for your new media room.

Because you have been a valued customer for many years and never missed a payment, we were surprised to find that your account is past due. Reminders of missed payment on your account were sent to you in June 25 and July 25. Your account is now three months past due.

By sending a check for $523.14 (which represents the past-due payments plus a $5 late fee for each missed payment by September 1, you can bring your account up-to-date and maintain your good credit reputation. Dear Mr.Cruz

All of our costumers pay promptly, so we cannot allow you to be delinquent with your payment. We have sent collection bills for the past six months with no results.

If you don't pay your bill by January 1, we are going to turn your account over to our attorney. We are giving our attorney authority to do whatever is necessary to collect the money. You will be sorry you didn't take care of this sooner. POOR WAY Dear Mr. Cruz

Your failure to make payment for the last six months on the home theater system you purchased from us has resulted in past-due balance of $1,076.28. At this time, We have no other option except to refer your account to our attorney for collection.

The purchase agreement you signed makes you legally responsible for payment for this account. Legal action is not pleasant for either party, and it could be expensive and embarrassing for you.

You can restore your credit reputation by paying the full amount due by January 1. Please send a check for the outstanding balance on your account in the enclosed envelope prior to January 1 to avoid legal action being brought against you. GOOD WAY By Group 2:
