Sample Letter


Dear :


I am writing to you on behalf of the Board of Regents of the Montana University System.� The strategic plan of the system places renewed emphasis on outreach to the State of Montana and a commitment to working with others to develop solutions to the challenges and problems that we face as a State.


They have asked me to invite you to meet with them during their meeting on March 20-21 in Helena.� The purpose of the meeting would be to prepare an inventory of the various challenges facing state government extending beyond higher education and higher education funding, and for a discussion of ways the board and the Montana University System can work with you in crafting solutions.


If you would be interested and willing to attend such a meeting please call my assistant, Ms. Sherry Rosette (444-0311).� If you would like to discuss this idea, you can call me at 444-0310 or the Chair of the Board of Regents, Richard Roehm (406-587-3990).
