Dear Sir/ Madam,

My name is Linda Bria Lemire and I have been a computer club member since 2010. I am writing this email to express my deepest disappointment regarding the cancellation of the following club appointment due to the absence of Ms Tasmeen Mohammed. As I informed my regular schedule with you before, I would have to go on my business in Taiwan from January to May in the following year. Therefore, I will not participate in any club appointment among these months. Furthermore, you assured that our schedule would not change dramatically despite any circumstances. It would be grateful if you could persuade Ms Tasmeen to attend to ensure our plan occurring as usual. If not, you should invite another famous computer expert instead of the former one.

As far as you know, we had worked very hard to prepare for this fantastic trip better. However, I do not know reasons why the Head of the club informed us that the trip to New York would be cancelled without any further information.

Might I recommend you some alternatives? The first solution is that you could provide us with some convincing reasons related the cancelled journey to make sure that all of the club members are satisfied. Another one is that you could hold an urgent appointment for us to discuss another trip instead.
