    When writing a letter (one letter) to a group a Committee, do you address each individually as Dear Mr.s Wright, Bower, and Tisdale, or Dear Committee Members.

    Or Dear Members of the Nomination Committee (whatever the name of the committee is)

    If you meant, by Mr.s, to use Mr. in the plural, it's Messrs.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
