Teratology Society Thanks Tonia Masson for 16 Years of Service

Tonia Photo.JPGThank you to Tonia Masson and congratulations to her on her new position as Deputy Executive Director for the Society of Toxicology!

Tonia began as the Teratology Society’s Executive Director in 1999. Her first Annual Meeting was the Society’s 39th, held in Keystone, Colorado. For sixteen years, Tonia has provided outstanding behind-the-scenes support and guidance for the Society. As many Society members and leaders have noted, she has been a joy to work with, handling countless challenges and situations calmly and capably.

At the November 2014 Council Meeting, Tonia was presented with an engraved wine decanter as a token of our Society’s appreciation for her years of service and dedication. We wish her the best of luck in her new role with the Society of Toxicology.

Hi Tonia,

   Thanks for all you have done to keep the Teratology Society running smoothly!  On a personal note, I know that I could not have been an officer in Teratology without all the help and support from you and your colleagues at AIM.  It has been a pleasure and privilege to work with you.  Look forward to seeing you at SOT!

Mary Alice
