Plan to Join Us for an All-New Annual Meeting June 23-27, 2019, in Charlotte, North Carolina
The 2019 Annual Meeting will feature a whole new experience for attendees.
• More than 700 laboratory professionals and colleagues will come together to learn from one another and network.
• The educational program will include 70 sessions and eligibility for up to 15 hours of P.A.C.E.®-approved education.
• Attendees will have a chance to engage with industry and get a look at the latest in laboratory technology.
Beginning in 2019, ASCLS and the Association of Genetic Technologists (AGT) will hold their annual meetings jointly.The partnership arose after recent changes with both organizations presented the two like-minded and complimentary membership groups the opportunity to work together. Beginning in 2019, ASCLS and AGT will hold a single meeting, integrating their educational programs, abstracts/posters, and industry engagement platforms. The format will allow for an expanded and broadened educational program and attendee access to a wider range of industry partners.The groups’ planning committees are focused on adopting innovative, new approaches to learning and industry engagement to build a unique, new attendee experience.

To help with the expense of attending the 2019 Joint Annual Meeting, we are pleased to offer travel grants for our Developing Professional members and Ascending Professional Members. These grants are made possible with support provided by Beckman Coulter, the ASCLS Developing Professionals Forum, ASCLS Diversity Advocacy Council (DAC) and the ASCLS Ascending Professionals Forum. They are available on a competitive basis. Congratulations to the 2019 grantees!
ASCLS once again will give back to the Annual Meeting host city with the ASCLS Provides HOPE – Helping Other People Event. This year’s event, organized by the ASCLS Promotion of the Profession Committee, supports Classroom Central, which equips Charlotte students in need to effectively learn by collecting and distributing free school supplies to their teachers. At the Annual Meeting, stop by the HOPE Project tables near the registration desk to make a donation and assemble kits or flashcards for Charlotte students, including wellness kits, art kits, and STEM kits.
You can also make a donation to the ASCLS HOPE Project, which will fund the kit supplies and any additional proceeds will go directly to Classroom Central.
Thank you to our generous ASCLS members for helping ASCLS provide HOPE to others!
