What is Memo Format?

Memo or Memorandum format is typically used for internal communications, e.g. to make internal announcements, notice of change in a policy or to advise of an upcoming meeting or event. A standard memo format includes elements such as (1) TO: All Employees, (2) FROM: Johnny Memoranda, (3) DATE: December 1, 2009, (4) SUBJECT: No More Memos, and (5) the body of the memo. There is often a horizontal line between the top headings and the body of the memo. Software programs such as MS Word include a variety of memo templates for you to easily create professional memos.
