You've been put in charge of planning a one- day departmental training seminar with Dr. Melanie Dobler as the speaker. You must make travel arrangemnets for the speaker, reserve a company room large enough for the number of people attending, and requistion any necessary items such as a computer and screen for a PowerPoint presentaion , chairs, tables and photo copies of training materials. In addition, arrange for two braks and a casual lunch. write a memo on that outlines the arrangements you've made.
Do I write the memo to Dr. Melanie Dobler,the people attending the seminar, or the hotel?
You write the memo to the person or organization that is sponsoring this training seminar.
It looks like that person is the head of your department. You're reporting to her/him what you've done to make arrangements for this seminar.
I have everything written down that needs to be in the memo, but I'm having trouble with the first sentence.
I'm not sure how to begin my paragraph.
You could start it --
All arrangements have been completed for the departmental training seminar on (date).
Check this site.
How long will you be online tonight helping students?
I'll be on Jiskha for another half hour or so this evening.
And you're welcome. :-)
All arrangements have been completed for the departmental training seminar on March 25, 2009. The Grand Majestic Hotel, in San Diego, California, will provide the following accommodations and seminar services:
1. Accommodations: (this is where I will put Dr. Melanie Dobler's travel arrangements and type of room)
2. Meeting room: One large banquet room to accommodate 65 people.
The meeting room will be set up(then I'll finish with everything I need for seminar)
Is this going in the right direction?
Yes! That looks great! You look well-organized. :-)
Thanks for all the help. I would like for you to proof read my finished memo if that could be arranged.
You can post it here. Some of our great English tutors are here in the morning.
