Second year members were recently emailed the results of a survey asking about their impresssions of ASM.  Third-, fourth-, and fifth-year members were surveyed as well.  The results of these surveys will be published in the September 2008 issue of Microbe.  Be sure to take a look at this interesting data when it is posted on September 1st. 

ASM A-to-Z
In response to requests for alternative navigation tools, ASM has cataloged most of its Online Resources in one easy directory.  Click here to find what you're looking for, alphabetically!  This is an evolving page, so please feel free to make suggestions for new links, or report broken ones!  We appreciate your input so we can make this as useful as possible for members!

Refer a friend to ASM and everybody wins!

The updated Member-Get-a-Member Campaign will kick off in early September.  Recruit your colleagues and you will be awarded useful and valuable prizes, your friend will become a member of the oldest and largest single life science membership organization in the world, and ASM will receive the scientific contributions of another microbiologist.  Details will be announced in the What's New Section of the website.  Check in September for more information.

Speaking of September...
It's that time of year when ASM begins sending out renewal notices for the 2009 member year.  This year if you renew by December 31, 2008 you will receive a $15 discount on selected ASM Press titles.  A list of these titles will be included in your renewal notice.
