ASCLS Annual Meeting and Exposition
Described as the premier continuing education event in clinical laboratory science, the five-day ASCLS Annual Meeting and Exposition offers cutting-edge scientific and technical workshops and symposiums. Since 1995, when ASCLS first met concurrently with the American Association for Clinical Chemistry (AACC), our members have been able to visit the industry's largest exhibition hall to review the latest trends and technologies in laboratory testing. ASCLS members receive a substantial discount on fees for registration and exhibits at the Annual Meeting.
As new laws and regulations bring momentous changes to clinical laboratory science, your ASCLS membership provides you with liaisons to Members of Congress, Federal and state agencies. Our government affairs team monitors and influences laws and regulations that affect the profession. This dedicated team, coupled with extensive grassroots involvement from the membership, ensures that the concerns of the profession are heard in Congress. To ensure effective advocacy, each year ASCLS also holds a Legislative Symposium. Participants learn the manner in which current issues are being addressed within government and are briefed in lobbying skills. Participants also meet with Members of Congress to discuss the issues important to the profession and to advocate for our best interests.
One of the important benefits to members of ASCLS is our regional, state and local meetings. These gatherings provide scientific and technical continuing education sessions, as well as networking opportunities with local and regional colleagues.
