Special Events

AACC Divisions, AACC's Society for Young Clinical Laboratorians (SYCL), AACC Academy, and other groups all will host special events at the 2020 AACC Annual Scientific Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo. Many of these events require advanced registration, and in some cases, registration is limited. Attendees can register for special events through the meeting’s online registration system.

SYCL Workshop and Mixer

Navigating the Clinical Laboratory and Driving Outcomes: Strategies to Excel at the Basics and Beyond

Saturday, December 12, 1–5:30 p.m. U.S. Central Time (Mixer 6–8 p.m. U.S. Central Time)

The focus of the 2020 workshop is to provide laboratory leaders with the tools and strategies required to succeed in the current laboratory landscape, regardless of their role or career stage. The workshop will launch with an overview for early-career laboratorians and the knowledge base and skill sets needed for success. Further didactic sessions and hands-on activities will be used to outline the steps required to effectively manage large-scale problems and find innovative solutions. Attendees will also learn how to shift from a problem-solving mentality into one of strategic planning and deploy key tactical approaches to communicate and accomplish their goals.

The SYCL mixer will immediately follow the workshop.

  • Registration: AACC member/non-member, $25. Includes the workshop and mixer. The number of participants is limited, so attendees are encouraged to register early.
