Serving as a vital support network, the CTAD is a professional and personal resource for laboratory animal technicians.
As an essential part of the CTAD, the Technician Branch Representative (TBR) network fosters an indispensable connection between national AALAS and laboratory animal technicians who work in the field. Responsible for delivering information about AALAS national programs and activities, TBRs remain in close contact with district committee members.
Included in TBRs’ responsibilities are:
Technician Branch Representatives must be AALAS national members and dedicated branch members who are able to attend meetings and conduct CTAD business.
Through the hard work and effort of the CTAD and its TBR network, AALAS offers laboratory animal technicians a variety of opportunities.
