C-CLM Membership

C-CLM Membership-General Information

To assist C-CLM with accomplishing its mandate, two levels of membership (full members and corresponding members) are involved and incumbents are appointed following review and endorsement by IFCC Executive Committee of the Education and Management Division.

The pool of candidates for both membership groups is produced through a formal application process. Both full members and corresponding members are nominated by National Society members of IFCC, usually via a letter of support. This letter of support must be accompanied by a C-CLM application form completed by the candidate. As the main purpose of C-CLM is to promote good leadership and management skills among clinical laboratory professionals, the committee seeks members who are experienced mentors, who are knowledgeable, and have a keen interest in sharing their expertise in this area.

Individuals, wishing to become a member or corresponding member of C-CLM should begin by expressing this interest to their National Society. The complete application process consists of the National Society letter of nomination, an updated curriculum vitae and the complete application form which provides information on the applicant’s interest in Clinical Laboratory Management, relevant past experience and level of commitment to C-CLM work. Applications are reviewed and officially endorsed by the Executive Committee of the Education and Management Division (EC-EMD) of IFCC, and the EMD chair officially inform successful candidates.

C-CLM Full Members

These positions require a broad knowledge of relevant disciplinary areas of the Clinical Laboratory and knowledge of quality management requirements. Experience working as a team leader, strong administrative skills and know-how (projects, people, budgeting) and organizing ability are needed. Appointees are expected to function effectively within the committee. Skills in multidisciplinary research, project management, mastery in writing for scientific publication, and use of quality management tools, and statistical methods are highly desirable.

Eligibility as a full member are those who show a strong commitment to tasks, are disciplined, and stick to timelines. Positions are open to mentors, team players, who are cooperative and collaborative, responsible, accountable, experienced in clinical laboratory management, teaching, and have good written and speaking skills in English.

Full members are held accountable to contribute the equivalent of 8 to 10 hours per week toward activities of the committee and including physical attendance at meetings. Full members commit to 3-year terms of office. The list and contact information for current C-CLM full members are below:

C-CLM Corresponding Members

Corresponding members come from member organizations of IFCC and are limited to one corresponding member per IFCC member state serving on C-CLM. Candidates with active interest in focus areas of the C-CLM and with previous experience in one or more of the focus areas within their own countries and organizations are encouraged to pursue membership in C-CLM. The expected commitment to C-CLM activities is the equivalent of 2 to 3 working days or between 16 to 24 hours per month. Corresponding members have no limits on the term of commitment to the committee. The normal route to corresponding membership with C-CLM is through the local national professional organization(s).  

Corresponding members are active at all meetings and activities of the Committee and deliver measurable outcomes in accordance with the agreed terms of reference of the Committee. IFCC does not reimburse travel expenses for Corresponding Members, therefore, are responsible for their own expenses when attending meetings.
