CLMA Membership: Empowering Excellence in Laboratory Leadership

CLMA aligns with ASCP

The acute challenges of declining membership and loss of KnowledgeLab income that developed in early 2020 resulted in revenues that no longer exceeded expenses. The CLMA board recognized the critical need to identify a path forward that assured the sustainability of the organization’s mission and work, rather than ceasing to exist altogether. Member feedback on the value and success of the CLMA and ASCP joint membership agreement and KnowledgeLab 2021 collaboration drove new rounds of thinking and planning that took shape as a blend of solution + synergy + continuation.

For additional information on the alignment, please refer to the FAQs.
