Confirm an Appointment, Meeting, or Interview | Letter-Writing Guide


It is wise to confirm an agreement in writing to ensure that all parties share the same understanding, and that you have a written record for future reference. A letter of confirmation accomplishes this end, as it reviews the details of the agreement.


1. Refer to your last contact with your reader, if appropriate.

  • Thank you for making time in your schedule to meet with me on Monday.
