The American Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation has selected SmithBucklinto provide full-service association management. ASBMT will continue to be headquartered in the Chicago area, but will move to the SmithBucklin office effective April 2.
ASBMT is a professional society dedicated to advancing the science and clinical care for patients who require blood and marrow transplants or other cellular therapies for blood cancers and other deadly diseases. Since its establishment in 1993, the association has been instrumental in numerous advancements in blood and marrow transplantation, as well as the development of stem cell transplantation regulations and standards. Its members include more than 2,200 physicians, investigators and other healthcare professionals from more than 45 countries.
In choosing SmithBucklin to provide association management, the ASBMT Board of Directors believed that the company’s experience, knowledge and skills will provide new resources and opportunities to support ASBMT’s members and advance the association’s mission to improve the application and success of blood and marrow transplantation and related cellular therapies.
“We are excited about the prospect of a long-term partnership with SmithBucklin built on shared values and culture. The board was impressed with SmithBucklin’s depth and breadth of resources, proven practices and respected thought leadership,” said Krishna Komanduri, MD, ASBMT Immediate Past President. “We strongly believe that this new partnership will accelerate ASBMT’s mission impact, help us achieve our organization goals, and ensure volunteers and members receive the highest possible service.”
Among other things, SmithBucklin will work with ASBMT’s Board of Directors to establish strategic objectives, and be accountable for developing and executing plans that achieve results.
