Program and invite template

by on
in Admin Pro Forum

Question: Annually, our division has a special doctors lecture, and we invite a prominent physician to speak. I've been assigned the task of creating the program and invites for this event. The invites mailed out need to request that the invitees RSVP and select their preference for dinner.

Does anyone have any samples to e-mail me for programs and invites? Any information would be greatly appreciated.  -- Sherry A. Cobbins, Chicago

Go to the Microsoft Office website and there are all sorts of templates on their website to help with that.
Here is the link:

Hope that helps.

Be sure to make it extremely easy for them to RSVP. Send the invitations by email with a link to respond, or put an email address on the bottom of the invitation along with a phone number. Also, be sure to give the FULL name of the person tracking the invitations. It's a pet peeve of mine that invitations say "Call or email Susie at......." She should be given the respect of her full name.

If you're going to use email, I agree that microsoft templates will help. If you're going to use snail mail, check out the Paper Direct website (paperdirect.com). They have program kits and invitation kits with response cards and their catalog is a wealth of design ideas.

Nothing beats an invitation in the mail. E-mail is too impersonal. I say go to your local Staples or Print Shop. They have a ton of pre-designed invitations/rsvp's and will even help you with the wording.
