I wonder whether there is even a single human on the "special committee"? My money is a web-bot that scraped my name from LinkedIn.
Why not come out and say "Our special committee think you are so inarticulate and dull that we need to write you entry ourselves, rather than beating about the bush with "Our professional writers will then craft an articulate, interesting, and informative portrayal of your accomplishments that will be both a treasured legacy and an impressive addition to your professional career".
You have been chosen to represent your industry in the next *2014 Top Professional Magazine*. I am thrilled to notify you that you have been approved for publication by a special committee. Your inspirational story may be featured in this esteemed and professional magazine.
This honor is only bestowed upon the most distinguished men and women. There is NO COST or obligation to be included.
After confirming your acceptance, your space within the magazine will be reserved. Our professional writers will then craft an articulate, interesting, and informative portrayal of your accomplishments that will be both a treasured legacy and an impressive addition to your professional career.
Only your prompt response is required to ensure your inclusion.
To accept this invitation to appear in the *2014 Top Professional Magazine* go to:
**Our registration deadline is Friday, January 31st, 2014. We must receive this verification on or before that date to include you in the magazine.**
On behalf of our Selection Committee, it is a pleasure to welcome you and to share and celebrate your many personal, professional and academic achievements.
