Is this package for all laboratory professionals working in my lab?

Absolutely! We do not discriminate between MLSs, MLTs, phlebotomists, or laboratory assistants. We believe that each and every laboratory professional makes our VOICE stronger.

I already renewed my membership for the year, can I get a refund?

Refunds will not be granted for membership purchases.

Can we carry FREE registrations over into the next membership year?

Unfortunately, no. The FREE registrations are to be used during the membership year that you purchased the package for. For instance, if you purchased a package for the 2021-22 membership year, they will be considered forfeited on or after July 31, 2022, which is the end of that membership year.
