Student or Learner
I came across a sentence in a speech script written by my Principal. It makes me very much confused.
The sentence is as follows:
I would like to 'convene' everyone to lend their support to this cause....
I find the word 'convene' oddly used. In my opinion, the better word is 'urge'. If I am not wrong, 'to convene' means to arrange a meeting or to gather for a meeting.
Will the sentence sound better if I replace 'convene' with 'urge'?
Your feedback will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
