About the Meeting

Beginning in 2019, AGT and the American Society for Clinical Laboratory Science (ASCLS), started holding their annual meetings jointly. The partnership arose after recent changes with both organizations presented the two like-minded and complimentary membership groups the opportunity to work together. The single meeting integrates their educational programs, abstracts/posters, and industry engagement platforms. The format allows for an expanded and broadened educational program and attendee access to a wider range of industry partners. The groups’ planning committees are focused on adopting innovative, new approaches to learning and industry engagement to continue building a unique, fresh attendee experience.

Statement on COVID-19

ASCLS and AGT are closely monitoring the developments around coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and its impact on the ability of organizations like ours to hold events. Based on current assessments, we are moving ahead with the final planning stages to hold our 2020 Joint Annual Meeting as scheduled, June 28 – July 2, in Louisville, Kentucky.

ASCLS and AGT place a high priority on the well-being of our attendees, speakers, industry partners, and guests. We are in communication with the Omni Louisville Hotel to ensure the environment is safe for our attendees. We will continue to follow the guidance and recommended safety measures of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO). If necessary, ASCLS and AGT are prepared to extend registration deadlines to accommodate potential attendee uncertainty. We are also preparing for alternative meeting options that would provide attendees a full Joint Annual Meeting experience, in the event that the meeting cannot be held live and in person June 28-July 2.

Thank you for your patience and understanding in this time of uncertainty. And, most importantly, thank you for the vital work you are doing to combat the threat of COVID-19.

Updates will be posted on this page as available.
