Join Us for the 2020 Joint Annual Meeting, June 28 – July 2! 

The 2020 Joint Annual Meeting (JAM) will feature a whole new experience for attendees.

Laboratory professionals and colleagues will come together virtually to learn from one another and network.

The educational program will include over 60 presentations.

Attendees will be able to engage with industry, educational programs and employers, as well as discover the latest in laboratory technology. 


The Ascending and Developing Professionals Forums serve to engage and inform individuals within ASCLS that are in those membership categories about the various opportunities that ASCLS  membership affords.  The Forums are responsible for assuring that the activities of the society address the needs and interests of clinical laboratory science professionals in the early stages of their careers. 

These scholarships were created by the Ascending and Developing Professional Forums because they understand that there is a need for forum members to have affordable access to continuing education.  This need is greater now with the current economic climate than ever before.
