A sample invitation to a conference
Dear Mr. Moriarity:
On behalf of the Board of Directors, I would like to extend a formal invitation; we would like you to be the closing keynote speaker at the upcoming 2009 NEERI Conference.
The theme of this conference is "Global Warming: A Major Environmental Problem." The conference will be held at the Oceanfront Conference Center, in San Antonio, December 3 - 5, 2008.
For your information, Susan McLeen will be the opening keynote speaker. The provisional title of her presentation is "Factors That Contribute to Global Warming." I will forward a complete draft of the program to you in a few weeks so that you can know what specific subjects will be covered by the other speakers.
We expect attendance this year to higher than it has ever been – approximately 2,000 delegates and 150 speakers. This includes a large contingent from our new European chapter, which is based in Geneva.
We would be pleased and honored if you would be our closing speaker at the 2009 NEERI Conference.
I will call you next week to discuss this.
