During our last meeting you expressed your concern about keeping in touch with our progress. This letter is in response to your request for weekly progress reports.

Over the last week we have confirmed lecture times with all the speakers, received 1,354 RSVPs and made accommodations for each participant. John has secured a team of receptionists and ushers for the event and hired a team to handle miscellaneous setup tasks.

Please set your mind at ease. Although much remains to be done, we have every reason to believe that we still have time to focus thoroughly on each detail before the seminar. I will contact you at the beginning of next week to discuss what we still need to accomplish and how we propose to do so.
