The Singapore Association of Clinical Biochemists (SACB) has come a long way in its 25-year history. As a society, the SACB was formally registered in January 1978 with an initial membership of fourteen. Since then, the society has matured and membership census put us at close to three hundred. This brief review highlights some of the activities of the SACB over the last year.
In addition to student, associate and ordinary members, the SACB has a complement of nine corporate members who have virtually supported the entire operating budget of the SACB. Crucial to the success of the SACB-Corporate relationship has been the "win-win" attitude prevalent on both sides. Although the SACB does actively seek funding and support in kind from vendors, we also have the novel approach to think through scenarios whereby our vendors can benefit from exposure in an SACB event. For example, the SACB organises Corporate Evenings, where new equipment/kits and products can be show-cased. It would only be appropriate for me to acknowledge that much of our success in organising events is due to the generous support of major vendors.
