Hello, Julie!

We appreciate your speedy response and are pleased to have one specific person for HRM-related communications. 🙂 If Mr. Rounds could reply with a quick note confirming you as the University’s preferred agent, that would be perfect, thank you. Again, we appreciate your prompt response and look forward to meeting you soon. Have a great week!

Dear Rose,

I have received the attached letter, by way of Mike Rounds. For future GTAC correspondence, please direct communication to me. I am the appropriate University representative for GTAC-related matters. I will consider the proposed date with relevant colleagues, and be in touch in the coming days, verifying that this date will or will not work. Thank you.
