Active participation provides the opportunity to directly influence the goals and activities of the organization. The benefits to volunteering for an organization such as ASCLS-Ohio are two-fold. On a personal level, volunteering for this organization can help impact the future of the profession and the society as a whole.

ASCLS-Ohio is a volunteer state society. We depend on you, the members, for setting the tone of organization and you are the very reason we exist! If you agree that this society is an important facet of our profession, then come and participate. The board knows that laboratory professionals are very busy both in and out of the laboratory, so we ask each member to share a minimum of their time and talents for the betterment of the profession.

A Message from J.R. Constance, ASCLS President-elect
ASCLS Needs You! – A Call for Volunteers!
One of the first tasks of the ASCLS President-Elect is to issue a call for volunteers – for individuals who are interested in becoming more involved in ASCLS national committee activities or as an ASCLS representative to another organization. Serving ASCLS in one of these capacities allows you to have an influence on your professional organization which, in turn, can set the direction for the medical laboratory profession. There are numerous opportunities for members to participate in the activities of ASCLS throughout the year, and it would best serve the organization if there is a mix of new and experienced professionals on all of the committees. New people with new ideas are always welcome, as are those who have served ASCLS in various capacities over the years and have knowledge of past activities.
Please see the attached document for more information to be a ASCLS volunteer:
