The following is the resignation message sent by Carlos Ossenbach onTuesday, November 14th
to registrants for the IOCCIII in March, 2007 in Costa Rica.
It seems that in the orchid world, goodnews travels fast, but bad news travels faster. Before I had a chance toforward the resignation message to those on my IOCC III mailing list, Ireceived inquiries from those whom I had not yet notified of theresignation. Therefore, I choose to share the resignation message withreaders of this list. Carlos is a man of the highest integrity, and duringthe years that I have been privileged to know him, he has demonstratedoutstanding organizational skills for the Costa Rican conferences in 2001,2003, and the IOCC III in 2007.
