Statement on CLMA Membership Enhancements and ASCP Partnership
This year brings a monumental increase in the value of CLMA membership. You may read more about the enhancements made to CLMA membership and our exciting partnership with ASCP in 2021 here.
This year brought unprecedented – but not insurmountable – change in every aspect of our lives. We took this year of uncertainty as an opportunity to renew our commitment to serving the clinical laboratory industry and our members to the best of our ability while remaining true to our mission as an organization.
With our renewed commitment to you, we’re proud to share a momentous agreement between CLMA and the American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP) for 2021.
Our partnership with ASCP creates never-before-experienced value for CLMA members. As a result of this partnership, CLMA members who are not already ASCP members will now receive an ASCP Laboratory Professional membership as part of their CLMA membership. Additionally, all CLMA members will receive free attendance at the virtual KnowledgeLab 2021 event, which will be a co-hosted event with CLMA and ASCP.
“CLMA members – and the value received from CLMA membership – were at the forefront of our conversations with ASCP when developing this partnership,” shared CLMA President Carol Collingsworth, MBA, MT(ASCP)SC. “We’re thrilled at the prospect of the new opportunities that will come your way as a result of this partnership and your membership in CLMA.”
As we begin 2021, we look forward to having you join us. We know that we’re Stronger Together – and we can’t wait for you to experience the enhanced value of CLMA membership next year.
CLMA memberships are annual and run through December 31, 2021. CLMA memberships are non-refundable.
