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.
- The Annual Meeting is held each year in late June. The 2021 Joint Annual Meeting is a collaboration between ASCLS, AGT and SAFMLS.
- The Clinical Laboratory Educators Conference (CLEC) is an important annual event for faculty, administrators, directors, advisors, and others in clinical laboratory science education.
- The Legislative Symposium 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.
