Historical Information

According to the Certificate of Incorporation of The Utah Histological Society, the Society was originally formed August 22, 1972. The Society met monthly and had newsletter. 

The Society was reactivated in 1998 when the National Society for Histotechnology (NSH) Symposium/Convention was held in Salt Lake City.

The Society was reactivated again in 2003 under new leadership with about 80 members. Unfortunately, the Board of Directors could not get adequate support in running the Society so the Society went largely inactive although a few Continuing Education events were held in 2009 and 2012.

In 2016, under the direction of the current Board of Directors, the Society was made an official State and Federal 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation. Key accomplishments achieved during the re-organization were:

  • New Articles of Incorporation were filed with the State through proper legal channels

  • Complete revision of the Bylaws through proper legal channels

  • Proper financial banking set up

  • Applied to be and was accepted as a Constituent Society of the National Society for Histotechnology (NSH)

  • Set up official email address and Google Drive account (for storage of Society documents)

  • Set up social media accounts 

    • Facebook​ (Utah Society for Histotechnology)

    • Instagram (@utahhistology)

    • Twitter (@utahhistology)

    • Coming soon: YouTube

  • Designed and launched a new website

  • Reached out to the majority of Utah facilities and established a membership database

  • Began Community Outreach Program by participating in STEM presentations

  • Planned and executed a successful Fall 2018 State Meeting
