Michelle McLean, who serves as the Senior Product & Clinical Applications Manager for GBO, has been named the Vice-Chairholder for this committee. Don Dunbar, who currently serves as a Product Specialist Team member, will serve as an advisor to the committee. Advisors to the expert panel are individuals who have extensive knowledge and experience in the subject area and are interested in actively supporting the efforts managed by the panel.

Some of the responsibilities of panel members include the preparation of project proposals, active participation in committee activities, reviewing and commenting on document drafts as requested, and in-depth knowledge in a technical field. Expert panels are established for various technical subject areas as determined by the CLSI Board of Directors. These panels identify consensus development projects, propose these projects to the Consensus Council, review proposals from other sources and advise the Consensus Council on suitability, and review and comment on consensus documents within their area of expertise.
