CLSI committees conduct business at in-person meetings, four times a year called Committees Weeks. Meeting announcements and agendas are issued from the CLSI office. It is CLSI policy to conduct all meetings in an open forum and to permit noncommittee participants to attend meetings, provided proper notice has been received so that space can be reserved to accommodate attendees.
CLSI January 2022 Meetings Will Be Fully Virtual Using data from two surveys that indicated the majority of attendees would be attending the meetings virtually, CLSI concluded that a fully virtual meeting environment is the best and safest option at this time. Going virtual allows us to provide the best possible meeting experience for all attendees and assures the ability to reach consensus on important topics.
NOTE: To adapt virtually, the meeting dates and times will change. To accommodate varying time zones and schedules, the meetings will span several weeks. Registration—including updated meeting dates and times—will be available soon. Agenda materials are due by December 20, 2021 for AST; Friday, January 7, 2022 for Antifungal; and Monday, January 10, 2022 for VAST.
As a US Internal Revenue Service (IRS) 501(c) not-for-profit organization, CLSI has a fiduciary responsibility to promote the public welfare and use its resources prudently while ensuring that volunteers do not incur inappropriate or excessive expenses. Given that volunteers must travel on behalf of CLSI, the following policy and guidelines for travel expenditures have been established. Any deviation from this policy or these guidelines must be approved by a CLSI staff member at a director level or higher, in advance of the expenditure, whenever possible. Volunteers are encouraged to use their best judgment in the particular situation and maintain prudent and reasonable use of CLSI’s financial resources while operating in a safe manner.
