Dear OCPA members,

On behalf of the executive council, we would like to extend our heartfelt appreciation to all our members and wish everybody a very happy new year!

The year 2023 has been marked by numerous excitements and shared accomplishments. We are deeply grateful for the extraordinary efforts of our executive team and collective achievements we have accomplished as a community. This year, we have successfully hosted two exceptional colloquia, completed a new round of awards (to be announced soon), initiated the preparations for our next annual conference, and developed plans for exciting future events. It brings us immense joy to welcome many new members from all corners of the world who joined us this year, enriching our international community. 

May we celebrate our community and join together to share new research, broaden collaborations, foster new generations of scientists, and connect with one another to proudly support our heritage. 

We greatly appreciate all of your dedication and continued support, and look forward to an even more fruitful 2024! We wish you and your loved ones a joyful and prosperous New Year filled with new opportunities and continued success!

Happy New Year!
