    Now, more than ever, it's vitally important to be engaged in our nation's legislative process. The annual ASCLS Legislative Symposium gives you the chance to do so in person. Travel to Washington, D.C., with medical laboratory professionals from six laboratory organizations and show a visible, united, and informed face of the profession to make our concerns known inside Congress.

    ASCLS Developing and Ascending Professional members who attend are eligible for $750 travel grants to help alleviate the costs of the Symposium. The deadline to apply for a grant is February 11.

    The 2019 event will be held March 18-19 at the Hilton Alexandria Old Town in Alexandria, Virginia. Register by February 15 and save $100 off the onsite rate.

    To be considered for a travel grant, you must be a current ASCLS member and have registered as a full conference attendee to the Legislative Symposium. Additional guidelines and the application can be found online.

    I just registered for the Legislative Symposium and am really looking forward to it! I also applied for the travel grant and turned in my application today. Do you know when applicants will find out if we receive the grant? I am going to start booking flights and finding hotel space now so just want to be sure I have the best way to budget prior to the event. This will be my first time attending and I have been waiting for months now for it!

    I turned in my application and got the confirmation today because I was waiting on a paycheck to officially register. Thank you for the fast turnaround on it given how carefully I have to plan around my jobs and school schedule. Luckily Legislative Symposium is right during my spring break, which works perfectly!
