CLSI to add new membership categories for 2013

Wayne, PA – The Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI) says it is set to introduce new membership categories for the coming year. With members around the globe, the organization says it offers a great opportunity for members to connect with laboratory health care professionals around the world on the development and implementation of globally applicable standards and guidelines.

The new membership levels – Tier I, II, and III – will allow members to choose a level based on the needs of their organization. Along with these category changes, members will enjoy increased access to standards through print, electronic, and online options. Discounts and pricing to fit distinct needs on standards will range from 50% to 70% depending on the chosen membership level.

Other enhanced benefits include electronic access to all documents, and, for some levels, free companion products, shipping, and educational programs. A notable addition is the option for CLSI supporters who do not work for a member organization to join CLSI as individual members. This opportunity will increase the volunteering and networking opportunities.
