Farewell from Lia Ross
After a short but intense stay with the Institute of Architects I have been drawn back to my former career as an Air Force Officer. I will be returning to RAAF Base Williamtown and my last day is today. I would like to thank the following members of the hard working Newcastle Committee for their help and support:
Debra McKendry Hunt
I would also like to single out and acknowledge the outstanding role that your chairman, Glen Spicer has done for the Newcastle Division since taking on the job as Chair in April 2007. Glen has been an absolute gentleman and pleasure to work with and his support has been greatly appreciated. Glen will be stepping down as Chair at the AGM next week and I'm sure you all join with me in thanking him for his contribution to the Institute whilst in the role of chairman.
I would also like to thank the members that regularly turn up to the events and support the Institute's initiatives and wish you all the very best for the future.
