Divisions are specialized interest groups within AACC that provide education and networking opportunities for their members. Divisions further the association's vision by advancing the practice and profession of clinical laboratory science and its application to health care. You must be an AACC member to join a division.
North American based members belong to Local Sections that provide educational and networking opportunities. In addition, sections do such things as speak for the field to state and local government, represent the views of the profession to local media, participate in science fairs, and collaborate with other laboratory societies in planning cooperative programs. Participation in local section activities is one of the primary paths to association leadership and is an excellent way for interested members to get active in their association.
The International Website provides an important link between the AACC and its International Members who play a key role in the Association's strategy and programming.
Society for Young Clinical Laboratorians (SYCL)

Its mission is "to develop opportunities and programs that support and encourage career development in the clinical laboratory sciences." Criteria for membership in SYCL are as follows: Individuals must be less than 40 years of age or a trainee member.
