The National Academy of Clinical Biochemistry

Annual and Other Meetings

The National Academy of Clinical Biochemistry has held annual meetings each year since 1977 along with a number of other conferences. At the first annual meeting in 1977 in Chicago there was no symposium. However, beginning with the 1978 annual meeting and continuing through 1994, the Academy held symposia on major topics of clinical significance. All 17 of these symposia with the years presented, the topic, and the city are listed below. Beginning in 1995, the Academy replaced the Annual Symposia format with meetings to develop Standards of Laboratory Practice (SOLP). In 1999 the terminology of SOLP was replaced by Laboratory Medicine Practice Guidelines (LMPG). Starting in 1997 the SOLPs and LMPGs (with some exceptions as noted below) were held as EduTrak sessions at annual meetings of the American Association for Clinical Chemistry. The NACB has also held other important conferences, although these were not Annual Symposia, SOLPs or LMPGs. These meetings are also listed in this index.

For some of these listed symposia or meetings, there is a linked pdf file of the entire program including the titles of the individual presentations, the speakers, sometimes the abstracts of their talks, and other information. Fellows who have copies of programs from any of these meetings, which do not have linked pdf files, are invited to mail them to the NACB Internet Coordinator so that they can be included. All original documents will be returned to the owner.
