Dear [your boss’ name],
I would like to attend a conference called YTH Live on May 7-9, 2017 in San Francisco, CA.
By attending this conference I can help our organization stay current on effective health tech trends and tools, make valuable connections with leaders and researchers, and learn new skills and cutting-edge technology solutions for youth health and wellness.
If I register in time for YTH Live’s early bird discount, registration costs just $390.00 plus fees for three days of learning and networking. [Insert your best estimate of other expenses for travel, hotel, and daily expenses.] YTH Live is one of the most affordable conferences of its caliber.
Attending YTH Live will help our organization develop connections with those working at the forefront of health tech and youth advocacy. The conference attracts over 500 attendees—I’ll have a chance to meet technology innovators, social entrepreneurs, health professionals, researchers, educators, government representatives, developers, philanthropists, youth advocates, and others.
YTH Live is a uniquely collaborative forum that transcends disciplines to advance meaningful learning. More information is at yth.org/live.
Thank you for considering my request. I hope I’ve outlined the goals and benefits of YTH Live, and that you agree that I should attend.
I’m happy to discuss this further at your convenience.
[your name here]
