A pilot program was initiated for the SOT 52nd Annual Meeting in San Antonio, Texas, when a number of members from diverse sectors agreed to serve as the first SOT Annual Meeting Roving Reporters. Mary Beth Genter, John Benitez, Kristy Kutanzi, Betina J. Lew, Nigel J. Walker, Tao Wang, and Xi Yang, prepared Communiqué Blog articles on aspects of the Annual Meeting of particular interest to them. Some of these blogs were disseminated during the SOT Annual Meeting and others immediately after—all are accessible from the list below.
By all reports, these volunteers enjoyed this experience and the response received from readers has been enthusiastic. For the 2014 SOT Annual Meeting, you are encouraged to consider volunteering to serve as a Roving Reporter. These blog articles are typically 300–500 words in length and are submitted as Word documents to be posted to the blog by SOT staff. To facilitate your participation, please go to the Volunteer section of the SOT website and indicate your willingness to take part in this activity.
