ASCLS just made your life easier! 

ASCLS is rolling out new membership packages created for employer groups within the scientific community (groups of 10+ members) and educational institutions.

This membership package entitles you and your institution to:
  • FREE or DISCOUNTED registration(s) to an ASCLS national meeting - the Annual Meeting and Exposition, Legislative Symposium, or the Clinical Laboratory Educators Conference (CLEC) - to use as you wish (number of FREE or DISCOUNTED registrations varies by number of members in the package). 
  • A reduced Professional Membership rate(s).
 For one fee, every staff member will have:
  • Electronic access to the award winning Clinical Laboratory Science journal and the ASCLS Today newsletter.
  • Access to many ASCLS continuing education offerings and programs for FREE and other courses for deep discounts.

Do you have coworkers that want to join ASCLS?  If so, we have a group rate for you!

For example, groups of 20 members will receive four (4) $50-off coupons.

For university/college-based programs: Thank your clinical affiliates with this access to free CE for the professionals who teach your students.

Either the program director or the lead contact for the package must be a member of ASCLS. They may be, but are not required to be, included in the package.

Free registrations awarded will be based on the initial membership package submitted. Student members may be added one more time during the membership year, but will not count toward the free registrations awarded.

All membership packages must submit a package member application form found in the "How to Submit Info" section below.

*$5 per student member and $7 per professional member will be sent to the state for state dues.

Please follow the steps below:

  1. Download and fill out the package membership application found below. 
  2. Send your form to ASCLS at
  3. Following submission of the form, ASCLS will generate a discount code that YOU will send to the people you want to be in your package. Be careful with this code—it is unique to your organization and you will be invoiced for the usage of this code.
  4. The potential members will use this code to join ASCLS if they are a new member, or renew their membership if they are current members. Full instructions explaining the code will stay available for a period of two weeks. After two weeks, an invoice will be generated which will include a list of the members who took advantage of the package.
  5. The invoice must be paid within two weeks of receipt or the memberships will be cancelled. If there is a delay in payment anticipated, that must be communicated to immediately.
  6. Payment must be made using a single payment method. Only one check (personal check or a check from the organization) or credit card will be processed for payment.

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 2018-19 membership year, they will be considered forfeited on or after July 31, 2019, which is the end of that membership year.

If you have additional questions, contact ASCLS at or 571-748-3770.
