ASGCT Giving Tuesday and It's (Probably) Time to Renew Your Membership

Jennifer Adair, Ph.D. - November 08, 2018

Since my introduction to the ASGCT in 2010, I have been blown away by the momentum of development and progress in the field. I was privileged to sit on the inaugural New Investigator Committee in 2011, and to see firsthand just how important the role of the Society is in mobilizing key stakeholders—not just researchers, but also patient advocacy groups, government bodies, and industry. The Society’s efforts to engage and educate the public, as well as policy makers and regulators, have been key to strengthening the future of the field. I feel honored to now sit on the Board of Directors at such a marvelous time and am grateful to those mentors and innovators who carved the path before me, continue to engage in new directives and muscle through the obstacles ahead.

Don’t miss out on your chance to be part of our collective progress. I encourage all of our members to ensure their dues are up-to-date and to renew their commitment to ASGCT if their membership is set to expire at the end of the year.

Finally, November 27 is Giving Tuesday—millions of people worldwide use the day to refocus their holiday spirit and determine their strategy for end-of-year charitable contributions. Because of our membership dues and charitable donations, ASGCT has made landmark progress in our advocacy and regulatory efforts in 2018, and, the Society will be launching a brand-new patient education program to be used by patients, clinicians, and patient advocacy groups in early 2019.

Every act of generosity counts and it means even more when our members work together. Join us in supporting both the research that drives our innovations and the patients we design them for by including ASGCT in your Giving Tuesday plans, and share your support with friends by tagging @ASGCTherapy and using #GivingTuesday in your posts.

Between our continued growth in membership and the contributions from our community, there’s no limit to what ASGCT can accomplish.
