    plan meeting

    Is this sentence correct?

    "I have experience in plan meeting"

    Or I'd better say "I have experience in plan meetings," or "I have experience in planning meetings"?

    Thanks,

    Thanks,
    I agree with probus. Also you could say "I am an experienced meeting planner".

    Re: plan meeting

    Or even "I have experience in meeting planning."
    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.

    Re: plan meeting

    Can I say: I have experience plan meeting? Or I'd better say I have experience planning meeting?

    Neither. "I have experience planning meetings".
