Huh, I read it just the opposite - non-commercial use with attribution
 sounds like like that is what this is.

If it was CC-BY, or CC-BY-SA you'd be OK.

The issue is that it is a CC-BY-NC license, and the proposed usage meets
the criteria of "commercial endeavour".

[I've come across several business that prohibit their employees from
attending any conferences in the state of California, regardless of the
connection of the conference to the company, because that attendance can
trip the "commercial endeavour" criteria used by the California
franchise tax board.]

Anyway, an email to the person would be standard practice for me,
But then I'm terrible at this license stuff.

Since your standard is to contact the license holder, prior to
distribution, to verify that the proposed usage is acceptable to them,
then you are doing the required due diligence.  Which means that even if
you don't grok the license, you won't run afoul of the license.
