BIOtech Now is the first in a number of new products from BIO intended to enhance our communications with the biotech community — not only with our members, but with other stakeholders as well. This monthly e-newsletter, combined with its web site, serves as our flagship in that effort.
BIOtech Now will:
- Offer original content that emphasizes the business needs of the industry.
- Highlight BIO’s advocacy efforts.
- Provide a portal to all BIO activities and events.
Most important, it will spotlight for those outside the industry the value of biotechnology.
Our industry is forward-looking and broad-based, representing the cutting edge in science and innovation. We believe this comprehensive, electronic communiqué reflects that energy and excitement. And, like many of BIO’s member companies that create solutions or products from renewable resources, this electronic format reflects an environmentally sound choice — one that is consistent with the values of our members.
At BIO, we see this as an ongoing project to communicate with the full biotech community. In coming months, we also will launch myBIO, a members-only online community that will give our members new ways to connect with colleagues and network in the industry — and communicate with us on policy issues through password-protected committee pages.
I hope you will value this e-newsletter and visit the BIOtech Now site. If you like what you see, please let us know how we’re doing. But also let us know how we can better meet your needs. We welcome your feedback at firstname.lastname@example.org.
