Local Meeting Support
Share |
ASHI provides financial support for you to hold a local HLA meeting. The main goal of this effort is to engage technologists in inter-laboratory learning activities.  ASHI is facilitating this activity by providing guidance on the process to develop a local meeting as well as by providing up to $1,000 in reimbursement to assist with local meeting planning and conduct*. 
We also created an ASHI Local Meeting Handbook to assist you in the process of setting up your meeting. Included in the handbook are: 
  • Local Meeting Start Up Guide Overview
  • Local Meeting Request Form
  • Sample Meeting Agenda
  • Post Event Requirements
  • Photo Release Form
  • ABHI Approved Provider Request Form
  • ABHI Accepted CE Activities
  • ABHI Provider Fee Schedule 
We encourage you to work with laboratories in your area to begin planning your meeting and to submit an application.  All applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Funding is available now!

If you are interested in coordinating a local HLA meeting for your lab, just download and complete this pdf and email it to



*ASHI will require a completed W9 before funds can be disbursed.

Why do we ask for a W9 form?

Submitting a completed W9 form allows ASHI to report to the IRS regarding the funds paid to you in order to host a local HLA meeting. The tax ID of US individuals is either the SSN - Social Security Number (in most cases) or the ITIN (Individual Taxpayer Identification Number) in some situations. The tax ID of US entities is the FEIN – Federal Employer Identification Number, sometimes also referred simply as EIN.
