from goddiscussion.com: Salt Lake City, UT will host the atheist convention this coming weekend. So as a "warm-up event," two Mormon professors from Brigham Young and two atheist experts held a panel to discuss "public perceptions of atheists and Mormons." The panel was moderated by University of Utah history professor Paul Reeve. "The panelists will tackle common stereotypes of both groups, dispel myths and answer audience questions." Once of the panelists was American Atheists President David Silverman. He has been with the group since 1997. He worked his way up to director, national spokesman, vice president, and then became president in 2010.
