What is ELMC2?

Hosted by ASCLS, the Emerging Laboratory Managers Collaborative Conference (ELMC2) is a one-of-a-kind all-virtual event that prepares medical laboratory professionals to thrive in management positions. ELMC2 provides convenient professional development designed to empower you to seamlessly transition into leadership.

The fourth annual event will instill the skills to lead and take on management/leadership positions within and outside the laboratory. Get real-world advice on how to understand and speak the languages of quality with other professionals with whom you interface, including nursing, pharmacy, and medicine.

Who Should Attend?

If you are laboratory professional pressed into management without any training, someone who aspires to join the ranks of management, or an experienced manager who just wants a refresher, ELMC2 is the perfect educational opportunity.

Why ELMC2?

Recent ASCP vacancy surveys have unveiled a pressing need for skilled leaders in the core lab, especially as nearly one-third of managers plan to retire in the next five years. In critical areas like hematology and microbiology, this percentage is even higher. As a new generation steps into these roles, many find themselves navigating uncharted territories without proper training. ASCLS is strategically focused on equipping those professionals with the skills to succeed.
