You can earn P.A.C.E.® credits for re-certification or to fulfill re-licensure requirements. ASCLS also offers FOCUS, a convenient, mail-in continuing education program published in our journal, Clinical Laboratory Science.  When you join or renew you may select an ASCLS Certification Maintenance Membership to get P.A.C.E.® approved online continuing education.  For more information, click here. Recognizing the importance of certification, ASCLS endorses the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences (NAACLS) in its accreditation efforts of schools which offer education in clinical laboratory science.

Publications

ASCLS members are kept informed through two Society publications. Clinical Laboratory Science is an award-winning,quarterly journal featuring articles on the very latest in research, education and government actions affecting the profession. ASCLS Today, our newsletter, is published 10 times a year and provides timely updates on association activities in the legislative, educational and membership arenas. These two publications, along with additional mailings targeted to Society leaders, keep our members informed.

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.

Governmental Affairs

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.

Grassroots Activities

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.

Personal Services

ASCLS members can choose from a range of discount services targeted especially for clinical laboratory professionals.  Participate in the ASCLS insurance programs and take advantage of group rates on health, professional liability, life, disability and automobile insurance.
