Sanjeet Singh began the closing plenary by thanking AQEIPS, the Quebec Association for Post-Secondary Disabled Students, for having its full board attend this event-an unprecedented representation from Quebec. He thanked all those who had made the conference possible, including the sponsors, exhibitors, panellists, NEADS staff, board members and the conference planning committee. Sanjeet also acknowledged Golden Planners, Advantage Audio Visual; the translators and sign language interpreters; and the Delta Hotel staff. Finally, he thanked the delegates, many of whom had travelled a long distance to attend.
Joby Fleming thanked the participants for contributing so much. NEADS would not be flourishing without its membership. He noted that the conference had given him the energy to continue fighting, and hoped that participants had made connections here.
Singh's final message as conference chair was that he hoped the conference had opened doors to success for delegates-and he wished everyone a very successful future.
