Thank You for Participating in the ATS 2016 Assembly Challenge!

The ATS Foundation would like to thank all ATS assemblies for their outreach efforts and generosity during the 2016 Assembly Challenge. This was the closest Assembly Challenge yet! The results are in: the Assembly on Respiratory Cell and Molecular Biology raised the most dollars with $94,718; Nursing had the highest member participation with 20.49 percent; Allergy Immunology & Inflammation had the highest number of first-time givers in December with seven new donors. The assemblies will receive special recognition at ATS 2017 Washington, DC.

Many members made gifts supporting the Research Program and other core programs in the final days of 2016. There was tremendous energy around the challenge this year, with assembly chairs crafting special messages geared specifically to their assemblies. Most assembly chairs sent two or more personal emails to their members during the challenge. Thank you for your enthusiastic support! And thank you for all that you do for the ATS, the Foundation, and respiratory health worldwide. Read more about highlights from the challenge.
