Veterinary Laboratory Professionals

Veterinary Laboratory Professionals

The Veterinary Laboratory Professionals (VLP), formerly Veterinary Laboratory Managers, is a group of laboratory professionals, including laboratory managers and directors, medical technologists, and laboratory assistants, who share an active listserv and a common interest in the laboratory testing of animal samples. The VLP has met with the ASVCP since 1996. It was granted "special interest group" status by the ASVCP Executive Board in 2000. As of 2003, the VLP is an official standing committee of the ASVCP. The VLP regularly contributes informative and practical articles for inclusion in the ASVCP Newsletter and coordinates an educational program at the annual ASVCP/ACVP meeting. The close association of the VLP and ASVCP is a mutually beneficial arrangement that we wish to encourage and develop.
