    Hi,

    I wonder what's wrong about "invitation". invitation - WordReference.com Dictionary of English

    NOT A TEACHER


    Maybe "memo," short for memorandum.

    Hi,

    IMO, both "memo" and "memorandum" sound too "big", unless the staff are being invited to a meeting with "the upper echelons of the company"

    I've never heard an invitation called a calling letter, and I'm wondering why TheParser likes it.
