Job finding club request

Hi Manisha,
Shaune here from Career Assistance Network.  Just wanted to drop you a quick email to outline the proposed partnership between the Wetaskiwin Library and CAN to offer Job Finding Club Services to the Wetaskiwin Service area.  We are hoping to offer 10 Job Finding Club Programs between June 2011 and May 2012.  Each of these programs will accommodate 10-15 participants (although our experience indicates that the groups are often much smaller than this with only 3-6 participants).   The program will run once per month starting in July 2011 and ending in May 2012 although there will be no program offered during the month of December.   Each month we are wanting to book your boardroom Monday to Friday 9am – 4pm for the first week of the month (at a cost of $25.00/for the first 4 hours and $5.00/hour for each subsequent hour for a total cost of $40.00/day - $200.00 for the week); the second and third week of the month we will need the boardroom from 9am – 12pm daily – Monday – Friday at a cost of $25.00/day - $125.00/week so $250.00 for the two weeks. We do not need the boardroom on the last week of the month.  Total cost per month to run this program from the Wetaskiwin Library will be $450.00 /mos.  As per our conversation today I understand that the library has internet and Wifi capacity which we are able to access (we will provide our own lap top computers for the program participants to use).  We are completely portable via travel boxes so we will come fully prepared with all handouts, assessment tools, etc. but the facilitator and/or participants may occasionally requiring phone, photocopier or fax usage – is this possible? And if so is it possible to increase the monthly boardroom rental to $500.00/mos in order to compensate for this anticipated use?  I would also like to ask if you would be willing to provide me with a letter indicating your partnership with this initiative for inclusion in the proposal submission, if so I would love to have it by this Friday, but Monday, April 4th would be fine too.  Finally, just wanted to tell you how excited we are to be able to enter into a community partnership to better serve the needs of the residents of Wetaskiwin and the surrounding service area.  This type of partnership allows us to spend maximum program dollars on client service delivery rather than expensive office space that is used on a very part-time basis.  Thanks again for all your assistance.  Chat soon.
