  • Take part in developing the standards that affect the work you do each day.
  • Directly impact and improve quality in laboratory medicine by sharing your expertise.
  • Enrich your career and resumé through your contributions.

Though you should be familiar with and use our documents, you don’t have to have an advanced degree to participate; nor do you have to be a voting member of a committee. If you begin as a contributor, and provide significant value to the project, not only will you be recognized in the published document, you may also be asked to become a voting member should a slot become available; and it is quite likely that you will be asked to participate as a voting member of a future CLSI project.
