You may notice this catalog seems lighter than the last one. That is because it is focused on the professional, corporate and workplace programs we offer that can increase your business skills and effectiveness, enhance your supervisory or management techniques, or help you be safer on the job. We did this in response to feedback from some of you at the firms and organizations in our district who expressed difficulty at finding the business education and training among all the pages of “fun,” swim and artistic learning experiences also included in the previous catalogs. Don’t worry – we have not dropped the fun courses. Here at Corporate & Community Learning, we still have a complete array of personal enrichment classes and workshops to stay healthy, have fun, and try new hobbies or lifestyle experiences. These courses still include something for everyone, regardless of age. Now, however, they are in a separate catalog mailed to households. And, if you would also like to see them, you can find an online, searchable version at the bottom of our webpage at www.lc.edu/ccl. Click on the catalog view that is titled “Community Learning.” We hope that by offering two separate catalogs, we can help each of you more quickly and easily find exactly what you are looking for. Your thoughts about this are very welcome and we look forward to reading your comments on Facebook!

The revised edition of Writing Effective E–Mail includes an added emphasis on how to avoid workplace disasters such as lost sales, customer–service nightmares––and in the worst cases, lawsuits and financial losses–– triggered by careless or poorly written e– mail.
