If I begin my membership in August of the current year, will my membership run through August of the following year?

The SCB-AALAS Board has recently made some changes to their yearly membership timeframe.  Membership runs from April 1st of a given year through March 31st of the following year.  Renewal membership forms should be available on the website in January of any given year to give several months for all members to rejoin and keep their status current for the following year.   

I am currently a member of SCB-AALAS.  How do I obtain my Login and Password to gain access to the members only areas of the SCB-AALAS website?

Current members only need a password to access the Member's Only pages. To obtain the password, please email  As soon as your membership is verified, you will receive the password via E-mail.  
Please note that an individual login and password are NOT needed. 

Do I need previous laboratory animal experience to get a job in a laboratory animal facility?

No. While previous laboratory animal experience may be preferred, it is not necessarily required. Obviously, hands-on experience with animals or extensive education in animal science and/or veterinary medicine is a plus. If you have a proactive work ethic, understand what it means to be a "team player", and have a strong passion for both animal welfare and scientific discovery, then a career in laboratory animal medicine could be for you.
