NEW ORLEANS, LA (May 1, 2018) — Celebrating its 23rd anniversary, the annual Executive War College on Lab and Pathology Management is now in session at the Sheraton Hotel in New Orleans, just steps from the famed French Quarter. This year as always, the Executive War College has brought together all in one place, an impressive list of participants from across the country and around the world.

Executive War College is the nation’s largest, most respected gathering on lab management and operations, and this year hosts more than 60 information-packed sessions, packed with actionable intelligence that attendees are able to take back and use to maximum effect in their own labs.

Executive War College has for over twenty years led the field,” said Robert L. Michel, producer of the conference and Editor-In-Chief of The Dark Report. “Now well into its third decade this conference continues to distinguish itself as the industry touchstone, where the profession’s leaders gather to share their successes, to network, and to hear from the early adopters and the movers-and-shakers.”

The Executive War College staff would like to extend a special thanks, and to acknowledge the valuable support provided by our 2018 Corporate Benefactors and Sponsors, whose support and commitment to our speakers, sessions, and services has contributed immensely to the success of this year’s event:
