Regional Chapters Committee (RCC)

CALAS/ACSAL has membership from coast to coast. To support this large geographic area, the organization has Regional Chapters, which operate at a local level. By becoming a member of CALAS/ACSAL, you are automatically a member of your local regional chapter!

Go ahead, Get involved!

Our Regional Chapters hold meetings, special events, and provide many opportunities for continuing education in the field of laboratory animal science.

Please remember to submit your Regional Chapter Update.

There are some extra responsibilities for all of the Regional Chapters. Each chapter will need to submit at least two other pieces to be used in our Members’ Magazine throughout the year. These pieces can range from a letter to the editor, articles from your local continuing education events, tech tips, SOP’s, jokes, or even some photos of your activities.

This magazine is made for you so naturally some of the content should come from our own members. Submissions could qualify towards your Mandatory Continuing Education component of your registration renewal and are mandatory if you wish to apply for Chapter Rebates this fall.

All submissions can be sent to Linda Groocock,
