Writing a welcome address for any board, including the Ushers Board is no mean feat. However, there are a few simple rules to follow that will make the task much easier.
Rule 1: Keep it simple
You don't want to get tongue-tied trying to enunciate complicated words or convoluted sentences. Therefore, keep the language plain and the meaning clear.
Rule 2: Keep it light
Include a few jokes, give your address a self-deprecating, ironic tone.
Rule 3: Rehearse and rehearse again
Ask friends and family if they'll listen as you read though and perfect your performance. This will help you iron out any places where the flow is wrong.
Rule 4. Be logical
Don't jump from one topic to another like a little bird looking for crumbs. Instead, move steadily between subjects allowing your audience time to digest and comprehend what you have said.
