CLMA Now Offers Four Core Individual Membership Categories

CLMA Membership Benefits


Additional Options

Institutional Membership

Institutional Membership is designed for hospitals, laboratories and other organizations with multiple employees in the field. This group rate enables you to purchase a bundle of Professional Plus memberships for your team at a lower per-person-cost, and all on one invoice. The Institutional Membership stays with the organization, allowing you to reallocate memberships if individuals leave the company or facility. 

Institutional Membership includes three Professional Plus memberships, with the option to purchase multiple bundles for your organization. Once activated, members in this category act as individual members, meaning any additional purchases or add-ons belong to the account they were purchased on (e.g. local chapter membership, education, etc.).

2020 Institutional Membership: $575
