Advocacy for Labs

CCLA advocates on behalf of clinical laboratories licensed by the State of California creating a unified voice before state leaders and regulators.

Membership Matters

Network with other professionals in the clinical laboratory community to discuss topics of interest. Each month the CCLA Board of Directors meets to discuss current issues relative to the clinical laboratory community. All members are welcome at the board meetings.

Advocacy for Labs

Our legislative advocacy program depends upon the CCLA PAC as an essential component of an over-all strategy which also includes active involvement of our membership in legislative districts and effective education by our legislative advocates in the state capitol.

Welcome to The California Clinical Laboratory Association

The California Clinical Laboratory Association (CCLA) was formed in November 1976 by a group of people representing both small and large laboratories who felt that the California lab community needed to have its own program and voice.
