Dear Members and friends,

As we say goodbye to 2021 and welcome in a New Year, I'm grateful for this opportunity to reflect on the events enjoyed, new partnerships and friendships formed, and reconnections with old friends and long time members this past year. 2021 was one of the most successful years that the BABC OC has ever enjoyed and I send a heartfelt thank you to all our members and friends for your continued support. As we look ahead to 2022, we continue to work dilegently to deliver meaningful business development opportunities and valuable transatlantic policy and commercial content. As always, please don't hesitate to reach out to me if I can assist in any way.

We've put together a fun photo gallery recap of all the events in 2021 which you can check out HERE.

Wishing you all the very best for a safe, healthy and prosperous New Year.
