Dear <manager>

I would like to request your approval to attend the IBA Women in Banking Conference being held October 17-18 in Springfield. I think that the program will help me develop both personally and professionally, and I would like to connect with fellow colleagues on insights, industry issues, and to share challenges and successes.

The conference has a great lineup of keynote speakers and bank-focused sessions to help me grow my career. The reviews from past attendees are impressive and I think that the content is relevant. You can view the agenda here: illinois.bank/women-in-banking.

The cost to attend would include the registration fee ($345), one-night hotel ($120), and travel expenses. Most meals are included in the registration fee. Your investment in me will certainly pay off! I hope to bring back new ideas and resources to help our bank function even better. 

I would greatly appreciate your approval and will work hard to make a return on this investment. Thank you!
