Distinguished Members,

The Ordinary General Assembly of the Society of Pharmaceutical Sciences of Ankara (FABAD), which must be held regularly every other year, could not convene in June 2020 due to the declaration of COVID-19 as a pandemic by the World Health Organization on 11 March 2020. Upon the permission of 1 March 2021 of the Ministry of Interior to hold meetings of associations, the Ordinary General Assembly of FABAD convened on 26 March 2021 with the attendance of members under the pandemic conditions.

The General Assembly elected, pursuant to the agenda, new members to the Executive and Audit Boards. The new Executive Board had two members replaced whereas the Audit Board had one member replaced. We are grateful for the selfless work of our colleagues at the Boards during our term of three years.

During the three years, scientific and cultural activities of our Society continued physically until the pandemic declaration, and online afterwards.

We are particularly grateful to the Editorial Board headed by Editor-in-Chief Prof. Dr. Nesrin Kelekçi Gökhan and all other colleagues for their selfless work achieving the promotion of FABAD Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences, the most precious asset of our Society and communicating our voice to the world, to the category of National Peer-Reviewed Journals, and for continued efforts towards inclusion in the list of ESCI Journals.

Building on our experience and knowledge and with the new impetus driven by our new colleagues at the executive Board, we will enthusiastically continue our work, undeterred by the pandemic, including our scientific and cultural activities to promote broader recognition of our Society. We will also continue to promote national and international recognition of Journal, and scale up the flow of quality scientific publications.

Our activities will continue to timely disseminate current knowledge and at times draw upon the vast repository of cultural concepts, with efforts concurrently to minimize the pandemic impact on our work. We are well aware and call upon constructive views and suggestions of our distinguished members. We always rely on your invaluable support for our scientific and cultural activities.

We wish our Executive and Audit Boards a successful term of office in good health and well-being, who will strive to create lasting works to future generations built on our legacy.

Hoping to walk towards the better hand-in-hand and in enthusiasm…
