MEMORANDUMTO:Jane SmithFROM:Gail YoshCC:John DoeDATE:April 25, 2021RE:Your subject line should be brief but specificA memo (or memorandum) is a unique business document. It is generally used for communicating policies, procedures, or related official business within an organization. A memo’s purpose is often to inform, but it occasionally includes an element
of persuasion or a call to action. There are a few items you need to note about memos that make them different from other business documents such as emails, business letters, and business reports.FormatThe following are general formatting guidelines formemos.· Memos do not use a salutation like in an email orletter. You should notstart with, “Dear XXX.”· The first paragraph of a memo always tells the reader why you’re writing your memo. For example, “At our meeting on June 14th, you asked me to review our latest sales report and provide an analysis. Below is a summary of my findings.”
· Memos are not usually longer than 2-3 pages if they are being used as a summary report. · Like all business communications, your last paragraph should end with a way your reader can contact you with questions. For example, “Please feel free to contact me at XXXX should you have any questions. I look forward to hearing from you.” · Memos do not have a closing line. They do notuse Sincerely or have your name at the bottom like an email or letter. Why? Your name is at the top, and since memos are primarily used for inter-organizational communication, the recipient knows who you are. · When memos are used as a summary report, youwill often see bolded section titles. · You can use bullet points in your memos if you want to list items in a section, but this will dependon what you are writing. I used them here to list items. If you are not listing details, keep to paragraphs.
Tone & ProfessionalismAs with all business documents, memos should be written in formal, not conversational language. And, just like all of your communications, they should be impeccably written, with no grammatical or proofreading errors. Please let me know if you have any questions about how to format a memo.There are 3 examples.Example 1I might have heard the word Utopia and dystopia before, but maybe some of you haven't taken enough time to understand its meaning.
