About Laboratory Membership

To be eligible for NILA membership, your laboratory must:

  • Be an entity that provides clinical or bioanalytical (including environmental) laboratory services
  • Have a valid CLIA certificate of accreditation or compliance
  • Have annual revenues less than $2 billion (U.S.)

NILA membership is by laboratory and entitles a laboratory to two designated individual contacts (primary and secondary) who must be executive officers (President, Vice-President, CEO, COO, etc.) of the member laboratory or persons having at least a 10% ownership share or financial interest in the laboratory.

Additional executive officer/owner "contacts" can be added (requires an additional fee).

Individual contacts receive all NILA communications and publications and can participate in NILA meetings and activities. The "primary" contact is the authorized voter for the NILA members laboratory (each NILA member laboratory is entitled to one vote).

The two individual contacts also receive a director/executive officer membership in the American Association of Bioanalysts (AAB), and are eligible to serve on AAB Boards/Committees as permitted by the AAB bylaws.
