Vote of thanks examples and how to write a brief formal expression of thanks at a special occasion proposed as a motion at a conference, ceremony or meeting talking to a committee chairman, or this could serve as content for wedding planner courses:

How to write a vote of thanks? In short there are two major guidelines for the proposer:

The first is refer to the central message of the speech topics of the lectures or presentations given by the previous public speaker(s).
