Dear Sir or Madam,
I am one of the trainees due to attend the ‘customer care’ course in June and I am writing to tell you my interest in being the social events’ organiser for the group.
Could you please send me a bit more information about the size and background of the group and give me a clue about the facilities at the training venue and some stuff there is to see and do in the local area. From the programme I have got, it seems that trainees will be free three evenings in the week and after 1.00 pm on Saturdays at the weekend.
I have some experience of acting in this role as we often run courses here for overseas colleagues and in the past I have been asked to keep myself busy with the social programme: trips, nights-out, group competitions etc. This is a role that I absolutely love.
Please drop me a line if you want any further information or would like me to provide you with the names of referees.
I look forward to hearing from you right away.

Dear Sir/ Mam,
I am writing in response to the role social events’ organiser that you advertised in the course description email. I would like to volunteer to take this position and have a try.
I have always worked in teams while organising social events. It’ll be really hard to do all the arrangements by one person. So, will there be any assistant for this role? How many social events will be held during this one month training? Will these social events only involve the students on training or will there also be social events in connection with external institutions?
I love making arrangements and bringing happiness to people. I have a lot of experience in organising social and public events. I was the public events organiser and coordinator when I was in university. I had organised a lot of on campus performances, parties and also holiday tours for students. They all loved my events. I can always get the job done regardless of the requirements.
I look forward to hearing from you.

Dear Mr. John Abraham,
I am making a request to nominate me as the social events’ organiser as you are going to select one of the participants. I feel I am appropriate for the position whom you are looking for.
I have been longing for the social events’ organiser position for many days after I completed my education. In my school and college days, I acted as an organiser of many social events. I performed well in those events as an organiser. One event still rings in my ear that I earned appraisal. I organised a trip to the Black Mountains in West Wales, UK when I was final year student of university. But after entering into professional life, I have not yet got any opportunity to perform as an organiser. So, I am eager to take the role of organiser.
However, could you please convey some information about the matter? How many events are planned to be held during the training session? Will these events engage only the trainees involving the training session, or will there be any involvement outside our group? Will I be paid for the role or not?
It would be greatly appreciated if you give me the opportunity as the organiser and provide me with relevant information.
I look forward to receiving your reply.
