Assistant Director for Event Planning and Operations, Mark Warfle, joined the CC&ES team over 10 years ago. A natural born event planner, Mark always gravitated towards organizing whether it was through his work in the local fire department, church or other community activities. While still in high school he got his event start by setting up, bussing and serving at events held at the Owego Treadway Inn. Since then he has coordinated the details for nearly every type of event. His event philosophy is “failing to plan is planning to fail.”

Love Coffee?

Contributed by Pooja Shah on 02/14/11 

Well, join us this Wednesday for our first event about coffee workers in Ethiopia and the influence our love of cheap coffee has on their lives.

'Black Gold' Screening
February 16th in CNS 112 at 6:30pm

"After oil, coffee is the most actively traded commodity in the world with $80 billion in retail sales. But for every $3 cup of coffee, a coffee farmer receives only 3 cents. Most of the money goes to the middlemen, especially the four giant conglomerates which control the coffee market. Tracing the path of the coffee consumed each day to the farmers who produce the beans, Black Gold asks us to 'wake up and smell the coffee', to face the unjust conditions under which our favorite drink is produced and to decide what we can do about it."

Discussion with free trade coffee to follow!
