Even though we are just half way through the society year, we are already looking forward to our next year that begins at the Annual Meeting in San Diego this summer.

Applications are now open for a number of volunteer opportunities that begin this spring as well as the national committee appointments for terms beginning in August.

The lifeblood of ASCLS is its volunteers whose talent, passion, insight, experience, effort and wisdom of is what powers the Society’s good work, amplifying the single voice of the laboratory science profession.

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.
  2. Review all of the open volunteer opportunities.
  3. Apply for the opportunities where you think you can make the biggest contribution.

Deadline for application on the current volunteer opportunities is Monday February 6th, but your profile will be used throughout the association year to fill other volunteer opportunities as they arise.
