It's  outside my culture, but I would add two hyphens.

In my dictionary "Coordinators" is spelt "Co-ordinators", the hyphen being used to show the syllable split.

On the other hand instead of "a thank you dinner", I would use a hyphen to join the the words to show that the phrase "thank you" is to be used a single adjective, thus: "a thank-you dinner".

If I am forced to nit-pick, you should know that here is (or was) a feeling that infinitives should not be split.

Famously, this is done in the 'Star Trek' introduction - "to boldly go". Purists would say "to go boldly", so they would also "personally to thank" or "to thank personally" instead of "to personally thank".
