Letter from the Editor

Joseph W. Norman
The Notable and Newsworthy: VIP Profiles, Issue 4, February 11, 2007

Dear Readers,

First, we would like to issue a statement to the Geneseo Alumni regarding our e-newsletter. Before next Sunday, alumni contacts will be removed from the list if they do not respond to saying they would like to continue to receive our work. We dedicate many hours per week to provide this e-newsletter for your benefit; therefore, we would like to give you the opportunity to opt-in to our service officially. Otherwise, we will assume you do not want to receive our stories of success. Thank you for bearing with us through the first few weeks of our “VIP Profiles.” We look forward to hearing from many of you this week. 
This week was a memorable one for me as I celebrated my twenty-first birthday on Wednesday, February 7th. It was a week filled with thoughtful wishes, meaningful gifts, and great company. I am thankful to those that went out of their way for me this past week. In between spending time with guests, I managed to do some reading from my book of the week, Working with Emotional Intelligence by Daniel Goleman. This is a continuation from his best selling book from 1993, Emotional Intelligence. The topic is a quintessential skill set for the work place or any other public arena presented with a wealth of information through research and stories. In terms of the “VIP Profiles,” we had a few important meetings and pieces of feedback about our e-newsletter. One new feature in this letter is the use of our “Notable and Newsworthy” blog to publish our profiles. This creates less of a burden on your inbox and gives you access to our other newsletters and profiles. We also researched some of the laws that govern what we are doing, including the “CAN SPAM Act” of 2003. This was an enlightening experience because although many of the issues discussed in the Act do not pertain to our free, value first service, they are good to know. Enjoy the new features and please keep the feedback coming. Thank you.
