Advocacy Committee

The Advocacy Committee proactively identifies regulatory, reimbursement and practice challenges affecting the International Clinical Cytometry community’s ability to deliver patient care in all geographies.

The Advocacy Committee alerts ICCS and its associated clinical flow cytometry societies to these issues, and invites them in turn to alert The Advocacy Committee similarly.

When possible and appropriate, the Advocacy Committee and ICCS membership will engage with stakeholder groups and agencies in order to provide expert guidance in the area of clinical flow cytometry to thereby ensure patient access to this crucial diagnostic modality.

Education Committee

The goal of the ICCS Education Committee is to provide educational materials to the membership. Committee members work to identify topics of interest and create educational materials using a variety of modalities, including the eNewsletter, videos, web presentations, Case Study Interpretation (CSI) cases, the ICCS website Question & Answer section and e-learning activities. The committee members are divided into subcommittees, as needed. The Education Committee collaborates with other ICCS committees, such as the Quality and Standards and Advocacy committees, and distributes related materials and updates. The Education Committee also works in partnership with the Clinical Cytometry Education Network, formed by ESCCA and ICCS for the global distribution of educational materials. Appointments are made by the committee Chair, after consideration of an application and letter of recommendation from an ICCS member. Elected terms are for 3 years, with the option of reappointment for a second term. The ICCS Course Director and President are ex officio members of the Education committee.

Quality & Standards Committee

The ICCS Quality and Standards committee is dedicated to the optimization of fundamental flow cytometric testing components. Its purpose is to identify major areas of variability, determine critical components needing standardization, develop and define acceptability standards and criteria, and provide guidance and measures for practical implementation in the laboratory. This group will work closely with the ICCS education committee and other entities as necessary.

Program Committee

Selected by the Vice President, the ICCS Program Committee includes individuals with diverse backgrounds and experience who help to design the annual meeting program. The group convenes in January and typically holds monthly conference calls to discuss potential topics and presenters, with the goal of finalizing the program in May. Often Program Committee members are charged with identifying possible topics for one of the plenary sessions, contacting potential presenters, chairing the session at the meeting and writing a summary for the ICCS newsletter.
