Dear SHOM members,
Another month has come to an end and we are already finding ourselves on the beginning of March, time flies. Many of you have used this time to travel again; within the country or abroad to visit family and friends. We hope this trips were enriching in any aspect and we hope you and your loved ones are in good health.
Ankara presents itself in a changing gown, let's hope winter is finally over and spring will arrive soon. It will be the time we can go outdoors and meet each other again more frequently. A lot of interesting SHOM programs and activities are waiting for you - we are looking forward to seeing you all again very soon!
