I have known Dr McGee for many years, we first met in Kyoto, Japan in 2004, and since then have both been to many International Federation for Home Economics meetings in Ireland and Germany. Dr McGee is a past European Vice President of the Federation and we both gave keynote speeches at the Federation centenary congress in 2008 in Luzern, Switzerland.  Between us, we also set up a bursary to send a home economics student to attend the past world congress of the Federation in Australia.
