The annual Legislative Symposium, co-sponsored by ASCLS, ASCP, AMT, CLMA, and this year, AGT (Association of Genetic Technologists) will be March 18-19, 2013 in Crystal City, Virginia.
The registration form is in the November/December ASCLS Today and is available at the Legislative Symposium webpage.
This symposium is your opportunity to help the laboratory profession speak with one voice as we advocate for important issues impacting our practice. We urge each constituent society to send at least one state representative and to alsoinvolve students and new professionals in the event. As the late Senator Paul Wellstone (D-MN) said, “If we don’t fight hard enough for the things we stand for, at some point we have to recognize that we really don’t stand for them.”
