“I do not think that I would be anywhere in my career beyond the entry level spot that I started in—that everyone starts in—if it wasn’t for ASCLS.”

How to Volunteer for National Positions

National volunteers on committees are critical to the achievement of the ASCLS mission, and grass roots members like you, who serve on them, are the people that GET THINGS DONE and help keep our organization moving forward. 

ASCLS Representatives serve as the face of the Society to other organizations, such as the Board of Certification, the American Hospital Association and NAACLS. 

Serving ASCLS in one of these capacities allows you to have an influence within your professional organization which, in turn, sets the direction for the medical laboratory profession. 

Diversity within the volunteer ranks makes ASCLS stronger. A mix of new and experienced professionals on all of the committees rejuvenate the organization with fresh ideas while those who have served ASCLS in various capacities over the years bring a wealth of institutional knowledge.

ASCLS utilizes an online system that matches volunteers with positions. Adding yourself to the volunteer pool is as easy as 1-2-3.

1. Login to the ASCLS Connect Community and fill out your regular member profile.
