    Last week I attended a conference. Before it started, the organizer said something like "Before the meeting starts, I'd like to address some housekeeping issues." I don't remember what she said verbatim, but I am sure that she was telling us where the bathrooms were, when we would have a break, etc. I am wondering what is the correct way to say what she said, since I don't remember the sentence exactly. Thanks.

    The way you've typed it is perfectly fine. Housekeeping issues can be thought of as items outside of the central focus of the goings-on (often administrative or personal issues) that still need to be covered.

    I've heard that phrase used at many meetings, exactly as you typed it here.
