Committee on Technician Awareness and Development (CTAD)

The Committee on Technician Awareness Development (CTAD) was designed to provide technicians with an active voice in AALAS. The CTAD’s goals are to:

  • Establish initiatives at AALAS specifically geared to enhance technicians’ roles
  • Recognize technicians as one of the assets of the national organization 
  • Develop technician programs and encourage participation at the AALAS National Meeting 
  • Encourage technicians to take an active role in all AALAS activities, meetings, and publications at the national, district, and branch levels 
  • Provide information and support to laboratory animal technicians
Serving as a vital support network, the CTAD is a professional and personal resource for laboratory animal technicians.
