Members maintain their ASCLS membership through state constituent societies.
Within these constituent societies, members can discuss local and statewide problems, compare and contrast issues, standards and methodologies of their respective laboratories, and stimulate local/regional interest in the profession. Constituent societies produce journals or newsletters to facilitate communications among their members. Workshops and seminars are sponsored to provide continuing education. Constituent societies also sponsor their own annual meetings, usually held in late winter or spring of each year.
When you join ASCLS, you are charged $10 state dues directly to your chosen constituent society. These dues are used to finance activities and opportunities within your society.
