Educational Events

ASCLS has three major live conferences each year, the Annual Meeting, CLEC, and the Legislative Symposium.  Live meetings and conferences offer continuing education with the added value of being able to see the speaker in person, to ask your questions, and to hear the questions and answers of other participants.  The conference format also provides opportunities for networking with your professional colleagues from across the nation.  Most state societies and some Regions also sponsor annual meetings, usually in the late fall or spring.  Click the Community Calendar link below for those dates.

The Annual Meeting is held each year in late July.  In addition to numerous continuing education sessions, the Clinical Lab Expo provides the opportunity to view laboratory technology advances at hundreds of vendor booths. 

The Clinical Laboratory Educators' Conference (CLEC) is held in February each year.  This conference is an important annual event for faculty,administrators,directors, advisors and others in clinical laboratory science education. 

The Legislative Symposium, a two-day meeting held in March, provides up to the minute information on legislative and regulatory issues impacting the profession.  Attendees also learn about the legislative process and how to present their views on Capitol Hill.  On the second day the attendees visit their legislators' offices.
