Dear Mr. Lee,

With over ten years of experience in event management, I have a broad background in coordinating all aspect of both small scientific meetings and large conferences with over 500 participants.  I am interested in bringing my skills to Acme Enterprises to assist you in creating top quality events that highlight your products and services.

My management style is collaborative yet decisive and I have earned a reputation for working extremely well with event volunteers.  In addition, I am a skilled communicator who is able to negotiate favorable terms with hotels, airlines, caterers and other vendors.  In early 2010, I oversaw an international conference for the Society of Natural Resource Specialists, which had over 450 participants and received the best evaluations in the conference’s twelve-year history.

I would be grateful if you would take a brief call from me later this week to arrange a convenient time for us to discuss how I might contribute to Acme Enterprises.

Best regards,

Karen Palmer
