2016 Annual Meeting Support Opportunities

SOT Appreciates the Generous Contributions of the 2016 Annual Meeting Supporters.

SOT Supporting Opportunities

Support Benefits Flyer

Supporters serve as visible evidence of an organization’s commitment to the Society’s mission of “creating a safer and healthier world by advancing the science of toxicology.” Moreover, your support provides an opportunity for private, public, and not-for-profit organizations to increase overall awareness of their services and programs to SOT members and Annual Meeting attendees.

Supporters are listed in publications related to the Annual Meeting, including the Preliminary Program, final Program, pre- and postmeeting newsletters, and the ToxExpo Directory. In addition, Annual Meeting Supporters are listed on the SOT Annual Meeting website and mobile event app, essential sources of information for all registrants. During the Annual Meeting, visual acknowledgement, which group supporters by the level of giving, are prominently displayed, and Annual Meeting Supporter listings are included in the SOT presentations in all session rooms. In appreciation for their support of the Society, they are invited to the SOT President’s Reception.
