The AALAS National Meeting

There are three technician-oriented events at the AALAS National Meeting:

  • The Technician Fun Fair
  • The Hunter Lecture
  • Tech Connect Luncheon¬†

The Technician Fun Fair is an educational, scavenger hunt which focuses on a set of questions about AALAS, the AALAS National Meeting, and exhibiting companies. The Tech Fair is an exciting way for technicians to learn more about the National Meeting and interact with vendors. Everyone competing will receive a certificate of completion worth 4 CEUs toward the AALAS Technician Certification Registry. There will be drawings for prizes for those scoring 80% or better on their exam.

Dr. Charles Hunter, a past president of AALAS, was a strong supporter of technician education and training. A fund was developed for technician-oriented educational opportunities, which became the Hunter Lecture series. The topics and speakers vary each year. Technicians of all levels are encouraged to attend.

The Tech Connect Luncheon provides a welcoming and comfortable environment for technicians to come together for a meal and network with one another. The event brings technicians from various workplaces, offering them a platform to connect with individuals who share similar interests. This event will provide an opportunity to socialize and establish new connections.
