    expression

    Dear teachers,
    If we have a meeting which has to last more than one day, that is, the morning session, then lunch; the afternoon session, then dinner. Then people go back home. The next day another session begins. Could you please tell me what the chairman should say to indicate the beginning of the session?

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
    Thank you in advance.

    Jiang

    Re: expression

    I'm not sure what expression you're looking for.

    "Hello everyone, and welcome to the first of what promises to be a two full days of learning, networking, and..."

    "Hello everyone. We look forward to working with you over the next two days while we..."

    Re: expression

    Dear Barb-D,
    Thank you so much for your help. The situation is:
    We are having theis defense. Because there are so many students the defence has to last two days. What should the chairman say in the morning of the second day? That is at the beginning of the second day. Should he say " Wecome back" or "Let's begin the third session of the thesis defence"?

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
    Thank you in advance.

    Re: expression

    I think it's always nice to welcome people.

    Good morning, I'm happy to see you all again as we begin our third session ...

    There are no set phrases for this - just say what feels natural and sounds welcoming and businesslike.
