Dear [Recipients Name],



Thank you for your invitation to address your annual convention in October. Unfortunately, I am unable to accept your thoughtful invitation as I will be overseas during that time.

You may, perhaps, consider approaching Jenny Smith who is also an expert in stem cell research and who has just returned from a study program in France. I am sure her experience and knowledge would be of interest to your members. I am sure your conference will be a success and thank you for considering me.



Sincerely,

[Senders Name]
