On behalf of the Australian Foundry Institute Queensland Division I would like to thank you for your exemplary personal contribution in managing and coordinating our 50th AFI Convention at Sanctuary Cove Resort. From the beginning to the end, the planning of this event was a credit to Lidia and Leanne in their roles of leadership and support in their field of expertise. Working side by side with our people, listening and adding a dash of professionalism to our ideas, which enabled us to work as a team but allowed for tweaking and moulding of what might have been an ordinary idea to a better idea. With warmth and genuineness and a desire that everyone attending our Conference would leave with great memories, we thank you once again for your effort.
