I am writing, as President for the meeting, to express my very great appreciation of the dedicated support offered by Meeting Makers over the past six years towards this meeting. Under Vicki Grant’s superb leadership and close liaison with the BOA office, the result of the meeting exceeded our expectations. Delegates clearly enjoyed all aspects of the meeting and its management by Meeting Makers was smooth and effective.””
