General Guidelines for Writing a Memo A memo is a simple, but important, form of communication that administrators and other employees in bureaucracies need to be able to write effectively. Because it is designed for internal communication, the format is less formal than a letter. Still, one should not treat the memo as if it were the equivalent of a conversation. The fact that it is a written document means that its impact will be different from that of a conversational exchange.In a conversation, the words used and the tone taken are something that can be supplemented with body language, gestures, smiles and other forms of visual and audio communication. In a memo all the reader has is the words.  Moreover, because anything written in a public organization may become public information, its content and tone are very important.Memos are brief communications intended to quickly present information, arguments, or opinions.Generally, a memo should be limited to one purpose on one subject. That subject should be effectively and briefly indicated in the subject line of the opening format. Whatever the purpose of the memo, its tone should be direct, sincere, and respectful (both of the addressee and of anyone mentioned in the memo). You will use the Memo as the basis for further investigating the policy issue and writing your policy paper.The four elements that must be in opening format of a memo are:TO:(name of person addressed)FROM:(the writer of the memo; full name in print; signature or initials added)DATE:  (date the memo was written)SUBJECT:(brief description of the memo’s subject)
