  • 2. Scenario 2: Dear YogaBC, Two weeks ago I posted my Upcoming Events to your online Community Calendar. I had been assured that all events would be reviewed by YogaBC staff and would be accepted and uploaded onto your website within one week of my posting; however my events are still not on your calendar. I have put a lot of work into these, and one of the events was this past weekend, meaning it never made it onto your website. Waiting over two weeks is really a stretch, and missing the opportunity to market my event through your website is unacceptable as this is why I pay my yearly dues. I would really appreciate a response to this email! KateDear Kate,Thank you for your email regarding our failure to post your events in our onlinecommunity calendar. We apologize for any inconvenience that this matter has causedyou.We understand the importance of posting events for teachers and our staff do their bestto ensure that all the postings submitted appear on time. However, due to the highvolume of requests this month we have experienced some delays. Our staff is currentlyworking on solving this issue and hope to have the rest of your events posted byOctober 15, 2011.In light of this, we have decided to offer you a 20% discount on your membership fornext year, which we hope will be acceptable to you. It’s our goal to retain you as asatisfied member and we hope to continue working with you in the future.Meanwhile we thank you for your patience and for your feedback.Thank you,Mariam EkizyanYoga BCwww.yogabc.org120 - 1857 West 4th Ave.,Vancouver, B.C., V6J 1M4Canada
