How to show my appreciation to the Admin staff watch

    Halo.

    Well 2 weeks before, i actually applied for a subject that i really wanted. But that subject has never been offered and the Director said that i need to find a lecturer that can teach it or not the application will be rejected. Well, i did find one and went through all the admin procedure for registering it. The Director said that the process will take some time since it will have to go through finance, policies and what not. Finally after 2 weeks, i got a phone call from the admin that the subject is approved and they will call me when it's ready for registration.

    I would really like to show my appreciation to the Director. I know it's her job but i think she has done a good one (since i saw her asking the department, going through all the policies, etc) Would a simple thanks suffice or a better one is appropriate? Some would say just leave it be..'it's her job' lol..

    I would like to say: "Thank you so much Madam for the effort. I truly appreciate it" is 'effort' here an appropriate word for the Director? I know it's petty but i just don't want to look silly or a fool in front of her

    Thanks!

    Write a letter of appreciation to her or a member of staff above her. It'll make her day and it's always great to hear positive feedback - I'm sure she doesn't get much in her job!

    Why not say, "Thank you for the time and effort you put into this for me. I truly appreciate it."
    Just a bit more than effort.
    My manager recieved an email of thanks about me once and it really made my day, why not email it to someone above her? She'll find out anyway.

    Better to say "thank you for helping me" or "thank you for your work".

    This, or

    write it in a Thank You card?

    Maybe I'm just old-school.

    This is actually a good idea!

    Since she is the Asst. Director, i think i would send it to the Senior Asst. Director (i've dealt with her once and she seem nice). What do you think?:

    "I would like to inform you that Madam <name> has done a good job registering a course that i've applied for titled:<course title>. I wish to express my warm appreciation for her time and kind effort that she has put into this for me and i think it's wise that i informed you about the matter since..."

    i'm stuck until 'since'. i want to say as 'her superior' or something...Well anyways all in all what do you think

    Don't use the word Madam. It's rather sycophantic (if that's even a word?).
