CSP Endorsements for CAP Elections

The CSP Board met with a number of candidates for CAP offices in the upcoming elections. The CAP indicated that Ballots were provided to CAP members on July 23rd. The CSP Board decided that based upon the quality of the candidates they would endorse all of the candidates for consideration. They were all very qualified and will provide excellent leadership in the various offices. Dr. Glassy is seeking re-election to the Board of Governors and is from California.

We encourage you to cast your ballots.

CSP Supports Bill to Allow MLTs to Use Training
Towards CLS License

SB 334 (Pan) would expedite the ability of an MLT to obtain licensure as a CLS through the creation of an "MLT-to CLS Career Pathway". It would provide authority and discretion to Laboratory Field Services to allow some elements of MLT training to satisfy the educational requirements to become a CLS. This would allow an MLT to utilize their 6-month clinical training program to satisfy a portion of the one-year post-baccalaureate clinical training program required to become a CLS.
This change will help alleviate the impediment to some MLTs facing the prospect of returning to a one-year training program. The reduction in cost and time will be helpful to assure greater opportunities for MLTs to transition to CLS licensure. SB 334 has been sent to the Governor and we expect him to sign the bill.
