The Association of Laboratory Managers Conference
10/21/2019 - 10/24/2019 (Minneapolis, MN, United States)

The roots of ALMA started as the University Laboratory Managers Organization (ULMA) founded by Drs. Claude Luchessi and Tom Lyttle in 1980.  The organization was soon expanded to become the Analytical Laboratory Managers Association (ALMA) to include the managers of analytical organizations in universities, industry and government laboratories.  Later, recognizing that laboratory managers in all disciplines including analytical, R&D, clinical and technical service face the same challenges, ALMA became the broader based Association of Laboratory Managers welcoming managers from all laboratory based organizations to participate.

ALMA offers a unique opportunity for managers and future managers of laboratory organizations to grow their skills through its annual conference that includes workshops, presentations from managers who share their experiences, roundtable discussions with peers from around the world and networking opportunities.
