A brief video, the “Power of Scientific Societies”, was filmed last week at ASM headquarters featuring President-Elect Tim Donohue. The film explains how groups like ASM have an immense power to improve the world through the collective strength of their membership. This video will premiere at the first meeting of the Yemeni Society for Microbiology in mid-February with the goal of inspiring not only cooperation between our sister societies, but high participation in the burgeoning association. The virtual remarks will also be available for use at other events, such as sister society conferences (when an ASM representative is not able to attend), and launches of ASM Bio-Resource Centers and Student Chapters, among others.
