1. The almost-final version of the 5 min. presentation is attached.
PLEASE rehearse it over the break, as we should start presenting right
2. Sodexho managers have expressed a desire to make a stance on the
Coca-cola issue soon, without even hearing position. One manager said
she may be against the campaign, because of the financial impact a
cancellation of the contract would have on the local economy.
We need to be prepared 2 address her concerns when we approach her.
-CAROLINE B. will contact the bottling plant in Vermont, and ask how
many people the employ, how big of a customer is UVM, and where in New
England they distribute.
-JOE will ask U michigan, Rutgers U. and NYU how they dealt with that issue
-EMILY AND NATALIA will ask economics professors the positive economic
impact of replacing coke with local sodas and juices.
