Kenya Chemical Society Profile
Prior to the registration of the Kenya Chemical Society, the idea of forming such a society had been in the minds of many chemists in Kenya. Following this line of thinking on May 31, 1988 an interim steering committee was set up, aimed at working on the constitution of the society and making necessary steps towards its launch. The Kenya Chemical Society was officially registered on September 19, 1991 and the first Governing Council Office bearers were elected on February 20, 1992.  This was followed by the  Inaugural  “Kenya  Chemical  Society Conference” on June 7, 1993.
The Objectives of KCS
Promote the advances of chemical sciences and technology in Kenya.
Enhance    communication    and    coordination    among    the    chemists    and    related professionals in Kenya.
Provide an enabling forum for discussion and a medium for dissemination of chemical knowledge among the members  of the Kenya Chemical Society and the public at large.
Encourage  advanced  training  and  research  capabilities  in  chemical  sciences  in  Kenya and immediate neighbouring nations.

Society of Radiography in Kenya
About SORK
Kenya Association of Radiographers (KAR) was formed in 1960 as a Voluntary Professional Welfare Society. After rigorous training by the colonialists, the radiographers then named it the Association of Radiographers, Kenya abbreviated as (AORK). This was to act as a medium to represent their interests to the Government. Around the 1970s, they changed the name to Kenya Association of Radiographers (KAR) but the Registrar of Societies did not formalize this and hence as per official Government records it was still known as AORK till the 9th of October 2004. This is when through a Special General Meeting attended by over 130 Radiographers at Reef Hotel Mombasa that the Association transformed itself into the Society Of Radiography In Kenya (SORK) through the adoption of an interim constitution with new modern structures. This was followed by amendments and ratification at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) on March 26th, 2005 in Nairobi, where new officials were elected.
Incidentally, the training of Radiographers was started in the late 1950s at Port Florence now the Western Kenyan City of Kisumu and over the years matured into a Diploma course in Diagnostic Radiography at the Kenya Medical Training College (KMTC) Nairobi.
The Society of Radiography in Kenya (SORK) is a professional body that caters for the professional interests of all the radiographers practicing in Kenya, founded in 1960. The Society boasts of having a following of about 700 registered and practicing radiographers in Kenya which can be estimated to be more than 90% of the diagnostic and therapeutic radiographers in Kenya. The Society is affiliated with related professional and community bodies and has successfully sought representation on national healthcare forums.
SORK is a non-profit making national organization that provides professional support for radiographers and it is directly responsible for the Professional, Educational, Research, and Public Service and Workplace interest of its members. It also determines the radiological health care agenda and gives opinion in wide range of professional issues. In addition, it also sets the practicing and training standards that become the policies co-opted and acclaimed by the government and health professionals in the country. The activities of SORK are geared towards carrying out quality control, Continuous Professional Development (CPD) and Continuous Education (CE) all over the country and it accredits the CPD points attained for onward transmission to the Ministry of Health (MOH).
Incidentally, the training of Radiographers was started in the late 1950s at Port Florence now the Western Kenyan City of Kisumu and over the years matured into a Diploma course in Diagnostic Radiography at the Kenya Medical Training College (KMTC) Nairobi.

Kenya Medical Association
About Us
Kenya Medical Association (KMA) is a voluntary membership organization open to all medical and dental practitioners registered in the Republic of Kenya. Founded in 1968, KMA's main objectives include promoting the practice of medicine in Kenya. The Association has grown in size and structure and currently it has over 2,000 members
Brief history of Kenya Medical Association (KMA)
In the colonial times there were three separate medical associations, for Asians and European doctors initially and later for African doctors. However unlike most aspects of life then, there was a meeting point for all doctors under the umbrella of British Medical Association (BMA), Kenya branch. That this was not a token is illustrated by the fact that the late Dr. K.V. Adalja represented the Kenya branch of British Medical Association at 1953 Commonwealth Medical Association conference in Cardiff, United Kingdom. He was also the first non European President of British Medical Association, Kenya Branch in 1958 - 1959.
About the time of independence came the Medical Association of Kenya, uniting the three medical associations, this then developed into the present Kenya Medical Association. There were no KMA divisions until 1973, when at the instigation of the constitution was changed to allow the formation of regional divisions, each requiring a minimum of 25 members. The first divisions were Nairobi, Coast, Rift Valley and Kisumu, (then Western Kenya) with the latest division being Garissa which was launched in September 2006 bringing the count of division now to 15. Initially Nairobi division was combined and administered with the National Secretariat before separating the function as an individual division.
Nairobi has several committees including Continuing Medical Education, Social, HIV/AIDS, Medical Camps and Road Safety. Lecture meetings are organised for members periodically.
KMA's first premises were offices rented in the Professional Centre commencing the late seventies. Until then Council meetings were usually held in the office of the then current Chairman. The present premises were acquired on concessionary terms from the Government in 1985.
KMA was a major player in the formation of the Africa Medical Association after Medical Association in Africa left the World Medical Association in protest at the readmission of the Medical Association of the then Apartheid South Africa. KMA has Cordial relationship with other medical Associations particularly regional, Common-wealth, British and Indian Medical Association as well as with the Ministry of Health and Medical Practitioners and Dentists' Board.
Our Objectives
To promote the practice of medicine in Kenya
To uphold high standards of medical ethics and conduct
To advise the Government, other medical bodies and the general public on matters related to health
To promote the welfare of doctors
To maintain the honor and interests of the medical profession.

About The IEK
The Institution of Engineers of Kenya (IEK) is the learned society of the engineering profession and co-operates with national and other international institutions in developing and applying engineering to the benefit of humanity.
History of IEK
The East African Association of Engineers (EAAE), which was the precursor to the Institution of Engineers of the Kenya (IEK), was formed in 1945 as a professional and learned body, independent of control by governments and with membership spread in the original East Africa i.e. Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania (Tanganyika and Zanzibar). The break up of the East African Community in the early 1970's resulted in the splitting of most of the professional/learned bodies, among them the EAAE. IEK was born out of this split. IEK was registered as a professional/learned and independent body in 1972.
Ideals and Objectives of IEK
The ideals and objectives of IEK since its formation have been:
1.    To represent the diverse interests of all branches of engineering.
2.    To promote, encourage and improve the application of engineering to technical and other related practices.
3.    To facilitate the exchange of information and ideas on technical and other related matters.
4.    To safe-guard the dignity and integrity of the engineering profession and safeguard the standards set to guide the application of engineering knowledge to the solution of problems.
5.    To contribute to and set standards for theoretical, practical and management training leading to acceptance to Membership of IEK and registration by the Engineers Registration Board (ERB) Commitment to Continuous Professional Development for members of IEK.
Distribution of Membership
Most members of IEK are resident in Kenya but IEK has members outside Kenya. The membership is drawn from practising engineers in the local/and central government departments, parastatals, private industry, consultants, contractors, educators, designers, manufacturers and other persons interested in engineering. The IEK is organised into the following units:
1.    Council of IEK based in Nairobi
2.    Coast Branch based in Mombasa
3.    Western Branch based in Eldoret
4.    Central Kenya Branch based in Nyeri
The interest of all members are represented by the Council of IEK, which coordinates the interests/activities of the regional branches and various other associated bodies. The Council of IEK arranges national conferences, seminars and representation of IEK members in various committees formed in the country and internationally. The regional branches and their committees play a vital role in membership contract by organising lectures, demonstrations, technical visits and in upholding professional standards. The success of the regional branches depends greatly on the support given by members who are encouraged to take a positive part in the activities of regional branches. The regional branches ensure maximum benefit is obtained by members and help to expand the membership of the IEK.

Activities of IEK
IEK provides a service to its members by means of seminars, lectures, publications and training, to enable them to keep up to date with technical and industrial developments, management aspects of engineering, changes in technology and relevant developments in Kenya and elsewhere.

Kenya Institute of Supplies Management (KISM)
About KISM
The Kenya Institute of Supplies Management (KISM) was established in 1976 as a membership organization for professionals engaged in procurement and supply chain management. Commencement of the Supplies Practitioners Management Act, on 30th October 2007, elevated KISM to the status of a National Body, and legally mandated it to oversee registration, regulation, training, promotion of standards and handling of disciplinary issues concerning professionals in the fields of procurement and supply chain management, in Kenya's private and public sectors.
The Kenya Institute of Supplies Management is mandated through the "Supplies Practitioners Management Act 2007" to support development of the Procurement and Supplies Management profession in Kenya by promoting application of set standards, best practices and professionalism across all sectors.
The Institutes overriding task is to nurture and build the supply chain management profession, all the while instilling discipline, ethics and order in the practice of this function within private and public procurement sectors in Kenya. This first strategic plan is meant to reorient the Institutes attention to enhancing supply chain management professionalism in Kenya.
Our mission
To enhance integrity and professionalism among our members and stakeholders in the procurement profession by offering training in supply chain management and promoting high standards of skills
Promoting ethical practices by providing the very highest quality products and services possible, while showing leadership in this area.
Promote and represent the profession of purchasing and supply management through active involvement in the various forums impacting on procurement.
Develop improved methods of purchasing and supply and promote their use in all organizations through trainings and seminars
Promote and develop the value of membership of the Institute in-order to increase individual and corporate membership levels.
The turning milestone came on 6th June 2000 when a nine member special task force led by Chris Oanda was appointed by the Ministry of Finance. It presented a Draft Supplies Management Practitioners Bill to the Permanent Secretary to the Minister of Finance. This Bill forms the basis of reengineering the procurement profession in Kenya but is currently pending and awaiting tabling in parliament.
KISM is run by a board, with an executive branch which deals with the day to day affairs of the organization. Members meet once a year to review KISM activities and events while the board meets once a month to coordinate activities and events. Sub-committees exist in various sectors and these are run by professional volunteers from appropriate technical expertise areas.
Our Vision
The Kenya Institute of Supplies Management envisages being the National body in procurement and supply chain management in Kenya.
This would mean that KISM would regulate the procurement profession in Kenya, in-conjunction with the PPD, being the leading supply chain professional association and trainer in Kenya that instills discipline and enhances ethical practices in both the private and public sectors.
The Goals and Objectives of KISM
The results we need to achieve:
To promote the procurement and supplies management profession in Kenya by ensuring the passage of the KISM bill (Practitioners Bill), and proper implementation of the Public Disposal Act 2005
Participate in the COYA by sponsoring a Supplies Management Award category and the Supplies Manager of the year in 2006.
Launch survey to ascertain the viability of a training Institute to offer short courses, certificate Diploma and Degree courses in purchasing and Supply management. KISM will also market in-house corporate trainings more aggressively.
To encourage training in the profession and certify qualified members through a well designed program of study and recognizable experience and contribution to the profession.
To redesign and launch a more interactive and informative website which KISM will use to inform and communicate with members and the public on activities and events.
To promote ethically sound best practices in procurement and supplies management both in the private and public sectors.
