ASI Founder and President, Dina Elbahesh, stated "Beginning a presence on social media sites such as LinkedIn will help us to advance our mission. We expect to continue the use of Social Media as our organization grows. Particularly once we establish a regular program of conferences and workshops, social media will help to spread the word of our hard work."
