The Region IV Leadership Conference was held October 25, 2014 in Perrysburg, Ohio. Conference attendees were given the opportunity to network with other ASCLS members, discuss issues and learn how to be leaders in their field and organization.
Some conference attendees are quoted below:
Sheila Ng, ASCLS-Ohio Member: “Among the things I learned from the meeting were that ASCLS plays an active role in advocating for the clinical/medical laboratory science issues. ASCLS has extensive membership grassroots involvement, providing numerous opportunities for its members to serve. There are many continuing education activities ASCLS offers (conferences, web-courses, etc) and invaluable networking opportunities and mentorship.”
Marcia Lee, ASCLS-Ohio Senior Director: “I gained a wonderful opportunity to meet MLS professionals from Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, and Kentucky at the Region IV Leadership Conference! Speakers from ASCLS detailed leadership and networking opportunities that ASCLS membership offers at state, regional and national levels. A huge shout-out “thank you” to the meeting’s speakers Catherine Shaffner (MLS(ASCP)SH, conference organizer and speaker), Andrea Hickey, (ASCLS Membership Director), Roslyn McQueen (Ph.D.,MLS(ASCP)SH, ASCLS Region IV’s Director),Tim Randolph (Ph.D.,MT(ASCP)) and Kathy Doig (Ph.D, MLS(ASCP)SHCM)!
This is an excellent opportunity and we hope to see you next year!
