The Society of Toxicology (SOT) has learned about the passing of Michael J. McKenna, PhD, several months ago. Dr. McKenna joined SOT in 1979 and was a member of North Carolina Regional Chapter and the Comparative and Veterinary, Drug Discovery Toxicology, and Risk Assessment Specialty Sections.
The SOT Annual Meeting attracts more than one-third of the SOT membership. Gathering more than 2,000 members in a central location provides excellent networking opportunities such as the Specialty Section luncheon events and evening receptions.
The SOT Council reviews the Constitution and Bylaws to ensure that they reflect the current operations of the organization. Changes include grammatical items, modifying the membership definition to more clearly include allied disciplines, and expanding the number of individuals permitted on the BOP.
