Formal Thank You letter
A Formal Thank You Letter is an important letter which is written to express one’s note of appreciation on an issue which has benefited the sender of the letter. It could be a promotion activated by a recommendation or a successful business transaction that was assisted by the recipient of the letter. It could be some unconditional help or some professional assistance. It should be written professionally in a formal manner.
If one thinks that the person involved in the issue meant the difference between one’s success and failure, then it’s certainly a good idea to write a letter. Giving the recipient a feeling of personal importance will make him that much more likely to help you again in the future. Mentioning more than once that you are grateful for their help will make them feel special and also know that you value their help. The sample letter mentioned below will help you draft an effective formal letter of thank you.

Dear Mr. Harris
RE: Note of Appreciation
With this letter, please allow me to offer my note of hearty thanks and utmost gratitude to you for your act of recommending me to be invited to be a Committee Member of the Board of Directors. I am indeed, very honored to join the esteemed Board of Directors as an ordinary member, much less a Committee Member.
I am highly grateful for the opportunity provided to me to contribute further to the betterment and welfare of Bayview Enterprises of which I have loyally served for the past eight years. I would like to sincerely thank you for your fair and just administration to your employees who give each of us an equal opportunity to succeed according to our merit.
I assure you that I shall perform my best at work so as not to disappoint you or anyone else with my work performance and contribution to the company.
Once again, thank you so much for your trust and belief in me.
