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 ASCLS Event Calendar link below for those dates.

The Annual Meeting is held each year in late June. Beginning in 2019, the conference will feature a whole new experience for attendees. 

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.
