Subject: Open House - Bannatyne Campus Master Plan
As you may know, the university is in the process of developing a campus master plan for the Bannatyne campus. Attached is a digital poster outlining the dates of three open houses on the campus planning process. As we want to make sure that as many students as possible have a chance to attend, would it be possible to have the poster forwarded to undergraduate and graduate students in Agricultural & Food Sciences? There will also be a notice sent to all staff in the coming days.
If there's someone else in the Department that I should contact regarding this, please let me know. Many thanks!

We can organize the refreshments and snacks for the 26th. I'll post up some signs and try to start spreading the word. Do you think you could forward the date and time to the rest of the grad students for now?
I'll send out a reminder email closer to the date too.

Subject: Student Voice at NABC 25
There will be another Student Voice <http://nabc.cals.cornell.edu/studentvoice/index.cfm> program for graduate students at NABC member institutions. One student from each institution is offered a travel stipend of up to $750 to cover travel and lodging and free meeting registration.
Please advertise this widely at your institutions. Please download the flier <http://nabc.cals.cornell.edu/studentvoice/SV10_Flier.pdf> to post on bulletin boards. The website with information and application materials is here<http://nabc.cals.cornell.edu/studentvoice/index.cfm>.
The application deadline is April 15, 2013, and the winners should be informed by May 1, so they can make lodging and travel arrangements. The NABC office does not select the winner - you do. In the past, some institutions have offered an additional travel stipend so a second student from the institution could participate. NABC will cover the registration costs for those additional students.
Previous participants have praised the program as a good experience with good networking possibilities.
