2020 Joint Annual Meeting

ASCLS and AGT will hold a single meeting, integrating their educational programs, abstracts/posters, and industry engagement platforms. 

JAM Goes Virtual!

As it has become increasingly clear that we would be unable to hold our Joint Annual Meeting (JAM) live, ASCLS and AGT have decided to hold the JAM virtually this year. Despite the effects of COVID-19, laboratory professionals still need continuing education opportunities and a chance for professional support. Most of our state and regional meetings, and all the national laboratory meetings have been canceled or delayed. So, we will come together virtually with our community for support and camaraderie during this challenging time.

The new virtual format will allow registrants to participate in up to 60 hours of P.A.C.E.®-approved continuing education on a flexible schedule that they choose, either live or recorded streaming up to 30 days after the meeting. Many laboratorians are being impacted by the dramatic financial changes felt throughout the healthcare system which have led to furloughs, pay-cuts, and financial uncertainty. To address this, the cost to attend JAM has been dramatically reduced. 

The meeting will take place over the originally dates of June 28 to July 2. Educational sessions will run from 10:00 am Eastern to 7:00 pm Eastern (7:00 am Pacific to 4:00 pm Pacific), with 4 sessions running concurrently most of the time. All sessions will be recorded and made available to all registrants within 24 hours. We do not expect attendees to sit through nine hours’ worth of sessions each day. Instead, we’ve built in longer breaks and, since all sessions are recorded and will be available for 30 days after the meeting, many attendees will choose to selectively attend live sessions. This allows registrants to attend the meeting while simultaneously remaining engaged in their home and work lives.
