We hope this website will be a useful and informative addition to your membership benefits!


Members maintain their ASCLS membership through the state and local societies like ours.Within the ASCLS-California, members are able to discuss local and statewide problems, compare and contrast issues, standards and methodologies of their respective laboratories, and stimulate local/regional interest in the profession. Workshops and seminars are sponsored to provide continuing education.

As required by the ASCLS Bylaws, an individual must hold membership at the state and national levels. It is this organizational structure that allows for appropriate channeling of local needs to the national level and national activities and programs back to the individual members.
