43rd Annual California Society for Histotechnology Symposium

The California Society for Histotechnology is dedicated to the concept of continuing education through which you may increase your knowledge and improve your skills. We intend to introduce emerging techniques and provide updates on routine procedures to insure that the professional capacity of our membership will grow. We hope that attending this Symposium/Convention among your peers will encourage you to seek more information in this and related fields, and that you will become a more valued partner in the histotechnology profession.

A message from CSH President, Kathy Hardy

May 12, 2020

As many of you know, there are many counties within California and the US that are still in Shelter in Place/SiP through May 31, 2020. These are such unprecedented times that are very much out of our control. As of yet, there is no information from the state as to whether or not we would be allowed to have a gathering of 50-100 people by August 6. With that said, I wanted to inform you that the CSH Board of Directors has unanimously voted to CANCEL the CSH 2020 Symposium/Convention that was rescheduled for August 6-8, 2020. We want to protect the safety of all our attendees, speakers, and vendors.

I would like to invite each one of you to attend our 2021 meeting in Pleasanton CA April 29-May 2, 2021 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Pleasanton at the Club. We know things can change rapidly for all of us but hope that you will consider putting CSH on your 2021 schedule. CSH would love to hear from those at your facilities that wish to provide a workshop for the next 2021 meeting.

Registrants that paid online via our website will receive a refund through Eventbrite and those that paid by check will receive their refund check back through the mail.

We appreciate your continued support and wish you all the best in 2020. Please stay safe and well. We look forward to seeing you in 2021 in Pleasanton CA.
