Organizing meetings

By email

Some common sense rules of thumb about organizing a meeting or event by email:

  • Choose a time/date far enough in advance that you can receive responses from people (assume that people check their email once a day, 5 days a week)
  • Put as much info into the email as possible (rather than sending multiple emails and/or last minute details).
  • If you don't get an response, follow up with a second email.


Some things are better done face-to-face:

  • Asking someone to be on your committee.
  • Asking someone to cover your TA office hours.
