Bundled Membership

The Bundled Membership enables hospitals, laboratories and other facilities to access CLMA’s full membership benefits at a lower per-person-cost. Bundled membership allows your organization to assign three full memberships to members of your staff. This membership is payable through one invoice, adding convenience to your tracking process.

Bundled membership includes three CLMA memberships with full membership benefits. The membership resides with the facility so if one of the members leaves, the membership stays with the facility and can be re-assigned. Note that members in this category act as individual members in our system, meaning they must purchase any educational products, event registrations, or chapter memberships individually.

2018 Bundled Membership: $500 (plus any individual chapter dues)
