Planning the Tour
Visits by legislators to your company's facilities are an effective way for grassroots participants to build relationships with legislators. Plant tours illustrate first hand how plant processes relate to legislative issues and are an excellent tool for grassroots advocacy. Tours showcase your facilities' environmental, health, and safety standards and connect members with the interconnect technology industry first hand. The following guidelines will help you plan a successful plant tour: * Determine the objectives for the visit.
Decide what issues you want to discuss and how best to link the issues visually with plant operations. Find out if the legislator has particular interests. * Issue the invitation in writing.
Offer a range of dates to accommodate busy legislative schedules; dates during congressional recesses are especially appropriate. * Announce the legislator's visit to all employees.
Once the tour is confirmed, promote it throughout the company by distributing a brief biography of the legislator and information about the legislator's importance. * Invite your company's government relations staff to participate in the tour.
You may also want to consider inviting a few top community leaders and industry association executives. Be careful, however, to avoid a large tour group. * Arrange for photographs during the tour.
Work closely with the legislator's press aide on publicity and news coverage. * Offer to provide or arrange transportation.
You may want to pay for or coordinate transportation to your facility for the legislator. (Check with your company's government relations or legal staff to see if there are policy or legal restrictions.) * Provide the legislator with information on your company prior to the visit.
For example, include the total number of employees, the products your company…...

Tour of the Brain

...A Tour of the Brain XXXXXXXXXXXXXX Rasmussen College Author Note This paper is being submitted on XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX General Psychology. A Tour of the Brain The brain is the control center of the human body. It is protected by the skull and is made up of three main parts, the cerebrum, the cerebellum and the Brainstem. The brain is the boss of the body, it runs the show and controls just about everything one does, even when one’s asleep. (Kidshealth, n.d.) During this brief tour guide of the brain, one will see how the brain fits into the Central Nervous System, how the main parts work together, and what would happen if one of those main parts were damaged. In humans, the nervous system is divided into the central nervous system (CNS), which consist of the brain and spinal cord, and the peripheral nervous system (PNS), which contains all the nerves that run everywhere in the body. The brain and the spinal cord serve as the main processing center for the entire nervous system, and control all the workings of the human body. They work together to let messages flow back and forth between the brain and the body. The biggest part of the brain is cerebrum. The cerebrum is the thinking part of the brain and it controls the voluntary muscles, the ones that move when you want them to. When one is thinking hard, trying to solve a math problem or trying to figure out a video game, one is using the cerebrum. (Kidshealth, n.d.) The cerebrum is made up......

Tour Planning at Cirque Du Soleil

...Case: Tour Planning at Cirque du Soleil 1. What concrete means are used to achieve standardization? • Cirque du Soleil takes a very standardized approach. Here are some examples of how they have standardized the method in which they take their show on the road: • Specific timing when planning for future shows. Shows will be planned 5-years ahead of time when it comes to continent choice. They then follow a 2-3yr lead time when they are selecting cities to visit. The tour plan is finalized 24mo prior to the event. They are very diligent with this timing as 90% of their tours are scheduled 2-years in advance. • Consistency when working on their own or with a promoter. In either case, the expectation, absolute must, is for Cirque to get the majority of the earnings from the event. • Specific timing when breaking down a performance site. Cirque states that it normally will take 10 days to move to a new site. This includes specifics in dismantling and preparing the equipment to be shipped (3 days) and time to set up completely at a new location (7 days). • Standardization of box office at new location complete with fiber optic wires. • Proposals follow a standard procedure beginning with a generic Cirque email before moving forward. This includes various reviews that Cirque has decided upon and opportunity in a market, especially like Turkey where they have yet to tour in the case study, to determine if having a show will be a good......

Further examining the definition of tourism forces confusion of the accuracy of UNWTO’s explanation as technical definitions can be ambiguous. To define tourism generically will become inaccurate as the definition will not account for changes made to the industry over time as well as the different meanings and interpretations of tourism at all levels of the system as well as around the world.

The Tour

...Charles Lucas Brenda Craven English Composition 101VA 1 July 2013 The Tour As a young man, leaving your home country for the first time is a very scary endeavor. I had barely left the small state of West Virginia, much less, traveled abroad to a whole other continent. I was about to embark upon the second adventure of my adult life. The first being my first airplane ride to attend basic training at Fort Bliss, in El Paso, Texas. I was happy to be doing be doing things as an adult, and I was proud to serve my country, yet I was very anxious about what may lie ahead for me. I guess at that age, and my lack of experience, I could not understand why I was going to Korea. There was no war going on there, and I was an American soldier. What in the world would I need to do in the Republic of Korea? I considered myself to be a lucky man. because I was going on what was considered to be a hardship tour. I was afforded the opportunity to take 30 days leave from the US Army, to spend with my family. I explained to my loved ones that I would be stationed in South Korea for a year, and I would not be home until the completion of my tour. My mom took it a little harder than everyone else, but she managed to pull herself together, and just enjoy the few days we had together. I visited with everyone to say my last good byes, and then it was time to go. My journey began on the 27th of December in 1985. I arrived at the small airport in Charleston, West......

The company offered 17 models of collegiate models that were made in school colors, with the school logos. Universities such as USC, UCLA, Notre Dame, Cal, and Ohio State participated in the program.

...A Tour to St.Dominic Church and Bataan Tourism “If you don’t know history, then you don’t know anything. You are a leaf that doesn’t know it is part of a tree.”- Michael Crichton. If history is unknown to us how would we appreciate the present times? Participating to tours that shows and imparts the history of something is a great opportunity to see and reflect why and what life has been today. Last September 23, 2015, Wednesday, together with my classmates we are blessed to witness historical places like the St. Dominic Parish Church and the Bataan Tourism Center which caters different historical events and contributions of our fellow Filipinos here at Bataan. First stop is the Saint Dominic Parish Church which is known as Abucay Church, located at Brgy. Laon, Abucay, Bataan. The church is founded by Dominican Missionary Friars and built to be dedicated to St. Dominic de Guzman. This church witnessed the massacre of hundreds of Filipinos and Spaniards by the Dutch invaders. The building is more than 400 years old and one of the oldest church in the Philippines. The making of St. Dominic Parish Church was headed by Father Geronimo de Belen in early 1600s. Saint Dominic Church once suffered by a horrible damage because of the earthquake but still survived. On the later years it was destroyed by fire but was revived and reconstructed under Father Jose Diego Pelaez. This only shows how much we value our church as much as we value our creator. Second stop is the Bataan......
