In addition to providing networking, publications, continuing education and high professional standards, ASCLS recognizes members who help make this society work. The Society presents state, regional and national awards each year at annual meetings. Some members are nominated for awards; others may apply to receive awards.

Each year the Constituent Society Presidents receive the guidelines for the current year's awards program. These guidelines are availabe to everyone, and provide up-to-date information, criteria and application forms.
